Bonjour Mes Amis 

How we enjoyed the latest visit of congregation members from the church in Le Pre St Gervais in Paris. It was a pleasure to have them with us, as always, and we were happy to team with the town's twinning association who laid on lovely afternoon of food and chat for them.   
The Le Pre visit coincided with the Ashby Arts Festival over the early May bank holiday weekend, so they were able to participate in the  activities St Helen's hosted as part of the event -  community mural painting and a rock painting workshop. They were also an important addition to the community-singing event which took place around the piano in church - Hymns were sung heartily in English and in French!
