Mosaic Evening services

The last Mosaic evening service before the summer break is this Sunday, 28 June. Looking forward to seeing everyone again in September.

What’s happening over the summer break

Please note that after the Sunday service in church on 12 July, the weekly service will be via video and not in the church. The church will reopen for a 10:30 am service on Sunday 23 August.
Most groups take a break during the summer, please contact the organiser for details.
Ladies' Bible Study: last session before the summer is on 2 July.
Francine would like to remind families about the Sunday Club padlet for lots of resources https://christchurchlille.fr/what-we-do/sunday-club/ or contact sundayclub@christchurchlille.fr for more information.

Looking forward to September

We still don't know if the Braderie de Lille is going to happen and if so, in what form. (A decision is due after 11 July.)
But the Church Council have discussed it, and decided we will not be holding our Pavement Café this year, whatever happens.
We couldn't guarantee health precautions, nor encourage people to travel on public transport.
So, look forward, we hope, to next year's event!

Christ Church Lille AGM advanced warning

Our AGM had to be postponed because of the Covid-19 lockdown. We have a new date, 27 September after morning service so please make a note in your diary.
- To comply with requirements, the notice needs to be posted 4 weeks before, so at the end of August. We'll make sure everyone knows about it before the summer break.
- The candidate forms and electoral roll forms are still valid.
