From our Rector


All Sunday's are special, as commemorations of our Lord's Resurrection; However, this Sunday will remind us how blessed we are as a parish!  Our Sunday School children will present their annual Christmas Pageant at the 10am Service. The children always do an outstanding job, and most importantly, it is their special offering to God in thanksgiving for all the good he does for them through his Son, Jesus! 


Secondly, we will have a special guest, Canon Phyllis Jones, Chief Operating Officer of our diocese.  Canon Jones will give us words of support, information, and encouragement regarding our stewardship, ministries and outreach (especially through Adelaide's Place and HEAAT Foundation). 


Thirdly, after the 10am Service we will procession out to the front of the church to bless and dedicate our new church sign!  


We are truly blessed by an active ECW, who will be preparing a Christmas Party in the parish hall, immediately following the sign blessing.   This will be a special party for our children!


May the blessings of the Child Jesus and the gift of joy and life he brings to the world be with you this upcoming Christmas Season,


 Father Justin

Sunday Coffee Hour!
Coffee Hour on Sunday after the 10am Eucharist is a meaningful experience for becoming better acquainted and a great opportunity to welcome those new attending Christ Church. Recently we have not been able to enjoy this gathering regularly as there has been no one setting it up. Therefor it would be greatly appreciated if individuals or groups of people would be kind enough to volunteer. There is a sign-up sheet in the Parish Hall.
