Two important notices this week.
Firstly, join us tomorrow Saturday 25th from 9:00 for a fun morning as we spring clean the church and hall ready for Easter. Coffee, croissants and chat all available and you'll be home in time for lunch. But if you can't make it at 9:00, come along when you can, we'll be really glad to see you.
And the second thing to remember is that the clocks go forward overnight Saturday-Sunday as we move to summer time.
So set your alarm, don't be late for church on Sunday morning!
The fifth Sunday of Lent
Sunday 26 March 10:30: A service of Holy Communion

Christ Church Lille Annual General Meeting

This is when we look back on the past year, and it is also an official requirement to approve the accounts and reports on our activities.
We will share more details nearer the time.


This week we are looking at the Intercontinental Church Society. They support Anglican churches around the world and their mission is to bring Anglican worship to people who speak English. They are our patrons.
Did you miss Tuesday's AGM of our outreach association, La Solidarité Anglicane de Lille? You can see the presentation and find out about everything we did last year on this page on our website.

Prayers for Ukraine

Please continue to pray for all affected by this conflict.
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.
