Christ Church Lille Newsletter 17 June 2022

Dear reader
As some of you know, our chaplain Debbie couldn't be with us last Sunday, as a close family bereavement meant she had to travel to UK urgently: our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. We are grateful to all the people who offered to help, both locally and in other chaplaincies and we thank Suzanne, our Licensed Lay Reader for leading services.
This Sunday there will be a service of Morning Prayer in church but there will be no service on video; videos will be back as soon as feasible.
In this newsletter:
  • Children's activity sheet
  • Next Working with Christ prayer group meeting
  • Church lunch
  • Prayer focus
  • Prayers for Ukraine
  • Braderie de Lille
  • Dates for your diary
  • Video and audio services
  • How you can support us
Here's the link to this week's children's activity sheet: An extreme makeover

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
