Why we want you to download a star

As Advent approaches, how wise are you feeling? You may not be Caspar, Melchior or Balthazar but, as we all follow the star towards the Nativity we’d like to know your prayers, thoughts and wishes for the Christmas season and the year ahead. So please download a star from our website, decorate it and write on your hopes and prayers. Just click the star.
Decorate your star, adding your own prayer or picture-2
For those of you who read about Christ Church Lille from around the world, please take part! Scan your decorated star to churchoffice@christchurchlille.fr not forgetting to add your first name and location, so that we can see how far the message spoken in Lille has spread! We’ll cut them out and add them to a display in the church, where all the stars will shine.

Christmas party

The Working with Christ Group would like to invite people to a Christmas party in the church hall on Saturday 17th December from 7:30 pm to 9:45 pm (buffet, games, quiz, music...They need to know how many people to cater for, so please tell them if you want to come, and also if you can provide a contribution to the buffet.
