Christ Church Lille Newsletter 26 August 2022

Dear reader
The end of August is nearly on us, and it's now a race to make sure everything is organised for our 2022 Braderie bric-à-brac stall. Read further down in this email for how you can help, and we're very grateful for everyone who has already signed up or donated goods to sell.
Thanks too to our faithful team of organisers, they are doing a grand job.
Counting down ...

And we can't go this week without a huge thank you to the Reverend Elisabeth Dean, who has led services every week over the summer while Debbie is on leave. Elisabeth is a faithful friend of Christ Church and we are so grateful to her. Thank you !

Working with Christ prayer group

As we prepare to go back to work or school after the summer, you are welcome to join us on Saturday 27 August at 10:30 am in the Church hall for discussions and prayers over coffee or tea and croissants.
(PS, yes 10:30 not 10:00 this time, train times oblige)

Prayers for Ukraine

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