Writing in the Parish Press for Pentecost (31st May), Fr Russell reminded us -
"... Though we may not come together fully externally, we can increase in spirituality and by the grace of Christ and the Holy Spirit share the love of God in Christ and learn to love despite differences. As Saint Paul said, there is nothing on earth or in heaven that can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus...."
Christ Church is on the corner of Moorabool and McKillop Streets in Geelong - follow the links from the menu at the left of this page to find out more about the Parish.
... worshipping at Christ Church....
... although services and other church activities were suspended just before Holy Week in 2020 due to the impact of the Corona virus world-wide - following the relaxation of some Government and Diocesan restrictions we are working towards resuming our Sunday and Weekday services as soon as possible - although this will not occur until at least 50 parishioners are able to attend services and, even then, there will be necessary changes as to how we worship. See the menu "Services after the shutdown" for details of how services will be conducted when they resume.
Even after services do resume, some other Parish activities may take a little longer to get started again - but keep watching the weekly Parish Press and the Parish Web Page for news about any activities you are interested in.
.... the 2020 Winter Woolies and Other Wonders Market was held on SATURDAY 27th JUNE - thanks to everyone involved in preparing for this event, in setting up, managing stalls on the day, and clearing up afterwards. It was a very succesful Market! Watch the weekly Parish Press and the Chronicle for news as to the final outcome and amount raised for the Parish. Thanks to all!
The Parish Book Group, the Parish Social Club and the monthly Parish Film Nites have not yet resumed, but watch this space and the Parish Press for news regrading this in coming weeks.
The Christ Church Community Meals Program (CCCMP) is continuing, as it has during the shutdown, but will continue to offer ONLY TAKE-AWAY MEALS AT BOTH BREAKFAST AND EVENING MEAL TIMES, for the foreseeable future. No sit down service will be possible until after the restrictions imposed by the Corona Virus have been lifted further; this letter from Jan McGowan sets out the details of the meals arrangements, and also the continuing need for volunteers to keep the CCCMP going.
Come and Worship with us! You will be very welcome!
