Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader]
It will soon be Ash Wednesday - 17 February - so Lent is nearly here.
We won't be able to hold an Ash Wednesday service that evening because of the curfew, but you will be able to watch and join in a pan-Diocesan service to mark this important day in the church calendar. So there will be an online service of Evening Prayer with a Homily on Ash Wednesday February 17th at 19:30 CET (that's 18:30 GMT). The Reverend Sam Van Leer, the Archdeacon of North West Europe, will lead the service and Bishop Robert will preach.
Put it in your calendar and we'll give you details next week.
What's in this week's newsletter:
- How to register to attend a service in church
- Mosaic evening services
- Services on video
- Offer of furniture
- Dates for the diary
- Support for our ministry and mission

Services in the church on Sundays (unless the regulations change)

There will be a Sunday morning service at 10:30 am every Sunday unless the regulations change - we'll keep you informed.
You'll still need to register, and Covid-19 precautions are still in place.
If you have any problems, please contact churchoffice@christchurchlille.fr

Mosaic Evening Services

Evening services in church are on hold for now, because of the curfew. But the team have prepared a talk for each week. The sermon series for February is entitled "Love, Dates, Heartbreaks - February is the month of love, but it’s all so complicated. So, how do you get it right?"
Like the weekly services, they are uploaded to the website on a Saturday evening, and you can find the link on this page on our website.
Or see the link below for the link to our YouTube page.

Services on video continue

Services on video will be available in addition to services in the church, for everyone who can't be there in person.
Links are on the homepage of our website, or you can go directly to our YouTube channel.

Furniture

Somebody moving away is offering a double bed (needs a new mattress), a 2-seater settee and a slimline chest of drawers. Free to people in need but items need to be collected from 3rd floor flat in centre of Lille. If any of this could be useful to you, please get in touch with Debbie chaplain@christchurchlille.fr
