Dear reader
Lent began on Wednesday. If you missed the pan-Diocesan Ash Wednesday service, it is available on the Diocesan YouTube channel.
Scroll down for a link to our page showing activities for families during Lent, and some suggested reading.
We will be asking you about our video services soon - we hope you enjoy them. We'd also like to know what more we could do to support you; but you don't need to wait for the questionnaire, you can send a comment at any time, just reply to this newsletter.
What's in this week's newsletter:
- How to register to attend a service in church
- Mosaic evening services
- Services on video
-Activities, resources and reading for Lent
- Children's activity worksheet
Our Outreach Association AGM
- 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.

Activities and Resources for Lent

You'll find ideas for family activities, and some suggested reading for Lent on this page on our website

Activities for children this week

We're sharing a worksheet for younger people. This week, it's based on Jesus in the Wilderness. Click the link to download and print the colouring pages.
With thanks to https://sermons4kids.com for their ideas. Why not take a look for more activities?

La Solidarité Anglicane de Lille (Outreach)

Churches are not allowed to donate, they can only receive (for good fiscal reasons!) so like other churches in France, we have an outreach organisation.
You can read more about what we do on this page.
It's time for the Annual General Meeting, where we will look at last year's actions and accounts.
If you are on the Electoral Roll of Christ Church Lille, you can vote at the meeting. Not on the roll? Get in touch, either to become a member or attend the meeting as a visitor. electoralroll@christchurchlille.fr
