Christ Church Lille Newsletter 5 August 2022

Untitled design-3
Dear reader
It's August already, the days are flying by and we're still enjoying - or suffering - some really hot weather.
Saving water, re-using, recycling and re-purposing are part of the work we are doing and will be focusing on in the autumn. The Church of England has an Environment programme and our Diocese has signed up to be an Eco-Diocese.
There'll be more on this in September/October, as we celebrate the season of Creation, but if you'd like to read more, here are some links:
A Rocha (the Christian conservation organisation)
Diocese in Europe
Church of England
On a different note, thanks again to the Reverend Elisabeth Dean for being with us every week. See you on Sunday?
In this newsletter:
  • Children's activity sheet
  • Prayers for Ukraine
  • Braderie de Lille
  • Summer Reading programme
  • Dates for your diary
  • How you can support us
Here's the link to this week's children's activity sheet: Treasures in Heaven

Prayers for Ukraine

Please don't forget that this conflict is ongoing. Your prayers are still needed.

Braderie de Lille

More information from the organisers braderie@christchurchlille.fr or on our website (click the link below)

Prayer Focus Summer reading programme

Over the summer months, instead of our usual prayer focus, why not take a look at our reading plan.

Dates for your diary

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
