A reminder about the Ecumenical Creation Evening

As part of the season of Creation, the Lille Ecumenical group of churches is organising an evening at the Accueil Marthe et Marie (metro St Philibert) on 4 October. Full details here.
They will be showing an amazing film, The Green Patriarch and if you can't go, then we highly recommend you take the time to watch the film on YouTube, it's not just an eye-opener, it's very moving and will make you think a bit.
Once you have watched the film, why not let us have some feedback? Just reply to this newsletter and we'll forward to Debbie and the Church Council.
