The church calendar is on our website, and all the services and readings are shown there. Also on the calendar are major works and the events taking place.
If you'd like to see all the photos and information about recent works, you'll need to go to our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ChristChurchLille/
But we have also created a shorter photo gallery on the website, showing the before and after photos. https://christchurchlille.fr/photo-galleries/restoration-work-on-the-floor/
We are enormously grateful to Lille Town Hall for all the work on the steps, there are now tactile studs, non-slip strips and most importantly, handrails!
For full details of forthcoming events, it's easy to consult this page on our website.

Braderie planning

Have you signed up to help yet? Please volunteer for at least one 2-hour slot on Saturday and/or Sunday 31 August- 1 September.
At the moment, we are particularly short of helpers behind the scenes; we need you!
Contact braderie@christchurchlille.fr to volunteer.
There are sign-up forms at the back of the church, too.
