A message from the Chaplain, Debbie Flach

Dear all
Thank you all so much for the lovely celebration last Sunday of the 25th anniversary of my ordained ministry. I was quite overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity and treasure the cross you gave me.

A huge thank you to each of you.
May God continue to bless our church community
Debbie

Good news!

The heating is working - you will be warm on Sunday. Sincere thanks to the Town Hall for managing this project and bringing it to a successful conclusion.

Lent generosity

There are already quite a few stickers on our weekly sticker sheets (the green ones on the notice board); please add a sticker if you have done something kind or generous during the week!

You can still sign up yourself on the 40 Acts site, as a family (lots of activities for children and families) or an individual.
If you're looking for ideas, you'll find a few in this document.

Please also be advised that the Prefecture in Lille have said they are not currently issuing Cartes de Séjour to British nationals, because they are waiting for further guidance.
