Dear reader
This stained glass window is in a church in Belfast, and is dated 1870 (the year Christ Church Lille was consecrated, so you might recognise the style).
It shows Simeon when Jesus was presented in the Temple.
You can read this well-known Gospel reading at this link
It is also known as Candlemas and is associated with Jesus as the light.

Sunday Club

There will be Sunday Club this Sunday morning at 10:30, so do bring your children along. They'll be finding out about how Jesus called his first disciples.
Whether they can be with us on Sunday or not, here's the link to this week's children's activity sheet: Home Sweet Home


There is a service of Holy Communion every week on Sunday at 10:30 am
For those of us in France, we also associate Candlemas on 2 February with pancakes, but the history of this link is a bit confused. You can enjoy a pancake or two on Tuesday, and maybe look forward also to Shrove Tuesday on 1 March, where the English tradition uses up milk and eggs by making pancakes before the start of Lent.
Our video services are popular, and there will be a link to this Sunday's service on the website.
A reminder that you can find all our videos on our YouTube channel
