Christ Church Lille newsletter 29 April 2022

Lily of the Valley
Dear reader
The lily of the valley are just coming out in time for May Day. The tradition in France of giving it to loved ones is said to date back to the 16th century when King Charles IX was given a sprig on May Day as a symbol of luck and prosperity.
Whatever the reason, it's a nice idea to celebrate spring time with these lovely scented flowers. And of course, showing people that you care about them!

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!
It's easy to give, here's a link to our "Giving" page
