Nativity Play

So that more people can watch the Nativity Play this year than would be allowed in the church, it will take place via a Zoom meeting, at 10:30 am and 6:30 pm
on Sunday 6 December. Everyone is welcome, but you need the meeting invitation to join in.

You are invited to join a “Reflections on Christmas family walk”
19 December at 2:00 pm
Parc du Hautmont in Mouvaux.
Starting at 2:00 pm, we will be walking ‘together’ but separate for about 1 hour with guided reflections and bible readings to share at designated times during the walk.
If you would like to join us please email Veronica at sundayclub@christchurchlille.fr so we can have a packet and a Christmas surprise ready for you.

And if you are participating in our ‘reverse advent’ outreach, you can also bring your donations with you and we will take them for you to the church on Dec. 20th.
