Christ Church Lille Newsletter 4 August 2023

Have you ever seen lavender growing? Maybe you have been to the south of France and enjoyed the sight and scent of fields of lavender.
If you have a garden you may have some too, but this rain has made it look a bit sad.
Lavender is known for its soothing properties, but if you haven't got any lavender handy, we hope you are able to relax a little this summer, even if you aren't able to take a holiday.
The Working with Christ group continues to meet throughout the summer, and their next meeting is on Saturday 5 August at 10 am. More details here.

Thank you to everyone who has donated towards the cost of the work.

Prayers for Ukraine

Please remember 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.
