We want to thank everyone who volunteered, donated, and helped in any way with last weekend's efforts to make our Braderie bric-à-brac stall a success; it makes a huge difference to our income, but we hope you all had fun too, even though it was hard work!
An amazing €2000 was raised to support our mission and ministry here in Lille; thank you everyone.

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.
