Heating works in the Church hall

The first site meeting took place on Monday, and we can now give you some details about the works.
  • Works start on 3 December and should last about 2 months.
  • There will be no access to the hall and kitchen during that time, but the lavatories will be accessible.
  • Anything needed in the hall or kitchen (for example, for Christmas) must be collected by 2 December.
  • The children's area/café area at the back of the church will be used to store some items and will not be available for your children until we can put everything away again when the works are finished. Sorry, but there's just no room and the area will not be safe for children.

Christmas at Christ Church Lille

The Christmas market will take place in the Aumônerie across the road.

And here's another opportunity to join with others to celebrate Christmas in song: it takes place on the afternoon of Christmas Day.
This annual event is organised by all the churches in Lille who come together for a joyful Christmas occasion.
