Please note that there are no discipleship courses this Sunday (27 October) as everybody is away - it's the school holidays.
Back next week, 3 November.
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.

Baptism

On Sunday 27 October, please welcome to our church family Elliana and Joana Uyi, the daughters of Michael and Tina.
A baptism is always a great joy; on Sunday this will be a double celebration!
On 3 November, please welcome the Reverend Phil Edell (from the Mission to Seafarers in Dunkirk) to our morning service.
Poppies are available in church; you can find out more about Remembrance and why we wear a poppy

Men's group: next meetings on 9 November and 14 December

Tom invites all men to join the men's breakfast (cooked breakfast, pastries, tea and coffee) in the church hall from 10 am. Please let him know if you plan to come so he can make sure there is plenty to eat. mensgroup@christchurchlille.fr

Ecumenical visit to Utrecht

The ecumenical group of churches in Lille (to which we belong) is organising a visit to Utrecht and the Old Catholic church (Union of Utrecht) by coach in November. The cost is €45 and you can find full details by clicking the button below.

As you probably know, the building next door has been demolished before new flats are built. But sadly, our telephone and internet cable was demolished at the same time, and although we're chasing this up, we shan't be reconnected for a while yet.
So you need to know that there are lots of ways to give; we've planned a stand-by system for the SumUp card reader, and you can always give via our PayPal account. See this page for information.
