A warm welcome to The Reverend Elizabeth Dean

While Debbie takes a few days' of well-earned leave, we are delighted to welcome the Rev'd Elizabeth Dean on Sunday 24 April. We asked her for a few words about herself:
I was ordained in 1992, part of the first group of women ordained as priests in the Anglican Church in Australia. I subsequently served as Priest in Charge and Incumbent of three Melbourne inner-city parishes. In 2009 I moved with my husband Noël to SW France helping out with ministry at St Andrew's Pau. I became a French Citizen in 2017. Since then I have been Chaplain of St Luke's Fontainebleau and now live in Paris where I am occasionally involved in ministry at St George's, regularly at St Mary's Caen as well as Locum ministry when the opportunity arises.
Please note that there will be no service on video this Sunday, back on 1 May!

Prayers for Ukraine

Weekly online prayer service

Monthly prayer focus

Our prayers in April are for the new Working with Christ prayer group. Here are the details of how you can join in with us.

The next meeting of the Working with Christ prayer group is on 30 April: contact david.bolton@christchurchlille.fr
We are entirely self-funded and we have cut back our expenses as much as possible; but we still need a regular income.
We're grateful to everyone who continues to support the church and its work, which goes beyond weekly services. Thank you!
If you're not already a regular giver, please consider whether you can give a little each month. Small amounts are just as welcome as large ones, really!
