1 October This is Creationtide Sunday so we will be celebrating and our service will be followed by a soup and sandwich lunch; everyone is welcome to join us.
If you would like to know more about how we are trying to take care of our world, you can find out on the Diocesan website about all the actions being undertaken.
The latest Diocese in Europe newsletter is full of ideas and reports on lots of things going on. Watch a short video here
What we urgently need here in Lille is a Local Environment Officer. Could that be you? Could you promote our caring for creation agenda? Help us to reduce our carbon footprint?

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.
