Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]
Thank you Brian for last week's Sunday worship. We are very grateful to him and the other people who have prepared videos this summer.
This Sunday please welcome the Reverend Martin Booth, recently retired from a parish in Kent. He hopes to visit us in person one day, but meanwhile he has prepared a video service (see below).

Service on 16 August

There is a direct link from the home page of the website which is posted on Saturday evening.
Church services on Sunday morning start again on 23 August, you'll need to reserve a place. Here's the link for you to do that.
Video services will continue in parallel, so that everybody can share in worship even if they can't attend the church in person.
Mosaic Evening services won't be starting again just yet, however; please contact churchoffice@christchurchlille.fr if you'd like more information.
A reminder about:


Every year, some students arrive in Lille without basic supplies, and we would like to help these under-resourced students get off to a good start.
If you have any basic living items (bedding, curtains, towels, kitchen utensils etc) that are in good and clean condition, and you are prepared to give away for free, please contact Maggie at churchoffice@christchurchlille.fr or visit our church website for more information and to find out how our Student Online Market Place works. Please DO NOT bring your items to church.
You don't need cash


Although we have kept expenses down, normal running costs continue. Thank you to everyone who gives to sustain the life, mission and ministry of this church. Your gifts are very much welcomed.
It means we can carry on. Full details of all the ways to give are on our Giving page. (you can use the QR code for fast access to the page) Thank you!

For your diary

  • Look out for this image (coming soon), which will enable you to purchase a "virtual" cup of tea or coffee and a piece of cake. There's no brasserie this year, so we can't offer the real thing.
  • "Journées du Patrimoine" (Heritage Days) on Saturday afternoon 19 September. If you can volunteer that afternoon, let us know.
  • Our AGM will be held on 27 September after the morning service. If you're interested in standing for office, please get in touch.
