This began organisation began in the late 1970s and aims to help anyone homeless or in difficult circumstances. Nobody is left out.

France Archdeaconry Information

The recent meeting of representatives of the France Archdeaconry was all about finances - the Diocesan strategy and plan, and also about fund-raising.
If you'd like to read more about this vital and difficult issue, you can visit the website, and watch the presentations:

Prayers for Ukraine

Please continue to pray for all affected by this conflict.

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.
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.
If you come to the AGM later in April you can see all the details of where the money goes - and where it comes from too.
