Christ Church Lille newsletter 6 May 2022

Dear reader
The month of May is a special time of year for Christ Church Lille. Look out for an extra newsletter with information about why it's special, and why you are special to us.
We held our AGM on Tuesday evening, and it was good to hear about activities starting up again, and plans for the future - read on for some dates for your diary.
At the AGM, we unanimously offered congratulations to Monseigneur Ulrich on his appointment as Archbishop of Paris after 14 years as Archbishop of Lille; we have benefited in particular from his ecumenical work here in Lille and wish him every blessing in his future ministry.
Reports from the AGM can be found here

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!
