It's still Easter, but we're looking forward to Pentecost so Canon Debbie has already taught the congregation a new song (in Yoruba) and is looking for new ones. 🎶🎶 Can you send us a video clip (YT or other), and the lyrics, of a worship song in another language?
Don't delay, do it now, we need time to learn the song! Replies to this newsletter please.
Meanwhile, this is the last week when we can enjoy one of the wonderful Easter hymns, here's a link from Coventry Cathedral 🎶 🎬

Our store room doesn't look like this, we need to have a serious clear-out. Can you help us on Saturday morning 13 May from 9h30-12h? We are aiming to make room and need to get rid of a lot of unwanted items.

Potting Shed

We're opening the door to the Potting Shed on Sunday 21 May after the service. Would you like to grow some summer flowers?
Come along and collect some seeds!
In order to comply with recent French legislation, we need to update our statutes.
We spoke about this at our AGM and you can find out more on this page:

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.
