Christ Church Lille Newsletter 5 January 2024

Did you receive our New Year's Greeting? The link is repeated above in case you missed it. But this week, we will be celebrating Epiphany.
The Three Kings arrive after their long journey and the baby Jesus is made manifest.
There are lots of traditions associated with this festival: in France, we eat a special kind of pastry, and the person who finds the bean (often a decorated porcelain figure but originally a dried bean) in their portion becomes king or queen for the day.
In the UK, it's time to take down the Christmas decorations but it's also the time to "chalk the door" and bless the home for the coming year.
And here's a link to a well-known hymn about the wise men for you to enjoy.
Here's the link to this week's children's activity sheet: A new Life in Jesus
