Electoral Roll

Every year at this time we revise our Electoral Roll. If you would like to be on the roll, and vote at the AGM, you can check whether you are on the roll, or complete a form to become a member.
Here is a link to the form.
More information from

La Solidarité Anglicane de Lille

This is our outreach organisation, and we will be holding our Annual General Meeting via Zoom on 21 March at 8 pm. Everyone is welcome, but only those on the electoral roll of the church can vote.
We will share the meeting link shortly.

Prayers for Ukraine

Your prayers are still needed. Prayers and other resources are available on the Diocesan website
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. In particular, we are thankful for some generous donations over the Christmas period, which have helped reduce our deficit. Thank you!
