How are your supplies?

During this lockdown period, we are aware that we are not able to use the simple table.

We are still collecting food stuffs and children’s clothes. We are still supplying people who have needs. If you, or anyone you are aware of, is getting short of supplies and not sure how to ‘resupply’ please, please let me/us know. The church council is eager to help anyone who needs some extra supplies at the moment and is ready to help out with discretion and practicality! Don’t go without unnecessarily. Email me at revbenharding@gmail.com

Just a reminder that there is a church-based counselling service which offers professional counselling in English and in French. The trained counsellors wish to offer hope, help, and an opportunity for self-development through acceptance, support, guidance, and a listening ear. There are currently two counsellors who are members of other churches in Lyon. For more information or for an appointment, call 06 77 25 84 21
