Christ Church Lille Newsletter
Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]
We hope you are enjoying our videos, and there is a very special one coming up for this Sunday - it's the traditional service of Nine Lessons and Carols.
Usually the church is bursting at the seams, but even if we could be open, only a few of you could be present, and there would be no choir ...
So this year we have worked hard to prepare a service for you that everyone can watch, share and enjoy.
It's usually followed by our Christmas market, so thank you to everyone who has ordered gift boxes or Christmas foods online (with many thanks to all the gift-makers and bakers). The deadline has passed for orders, but we're offering you the chance to donate the cost of the mince pie and mulled wine that you might have bought. Thank you most sincerely for all contributions.
What's in this week's newsletter:
- Advent video series
A Service of Nine Lessons and Carols
- Virtual Mince Pie and Mulled Wine
- Our Christmas services
- Reflections on Christmas family walk
- Support for our ministry and mission

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.
You don't need cash
