Christ Church Lille newsletter 27 May 2022

Dear reader
This Sunday, 29 May, we will be welcoming John Lamb to talk to us about the Gideons. You might like to take a look at their website: https://gideons.org and we'll be hearing from Debbie about Generous Living.
Thy Kingdom Come is an international cycle of prayer, which runs from Ascension to Pentecost; read more below.
Yesterday was Ascension Day, and we hope you were able to watch the special Ascension Day video, here's a link:
PS We asked you last week if you knew who in our congregation is a descendant of the Windsor family, and it's Patricia Hawkins (née Windsor). Did you look at the Ascension Day window?

And celebrate with us at Pentecost

Join us to celebrate Pentecost on Sunday 5 June. We will also be celebrating HM Queen's Platinum Jubilee (read more at this link) and the service will be followed by a celebration drink and cake.

Monthly prayer focus

Our prayers in May are for the church council. Read more details by clicking the button and find out how to join us in prayer.
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. Thank you!
If you're not already a regular giver, please consider whether you can give a little each month. Small amounts are just as welcome as large ones, really!
It's easy to give, here's a link to our "Giving" page
