Writing on the Sunday before Christmas, Fr Russell reminded us -
"... The one we know as Jesus of Nazareth is not a new phenomenon or one that came into being 2000 years ago..... Jesus came to do the will of his Father and the self-giving nature of God becomes our nature when our hearts join with His....."
...Each kind word or deed we perform, each kind thought and each rejection of the negative thoughts, words and deeds will help us become one with the self-giving nature revealed in Christ our Lord..."

... still celebrasting Easter at Christ Church....
Holy Week and Easter are only a few days away, but this year our celebrations and the other Parish activities have been CANCELLED because of the impact of the Corona virus world-wide - but follow the links from our Home Page to see how you can celebrate Holy Week at home.
******** Please note that ALL the parish activities listed below (and any others not listed) have been cancelled or postponed due to the impact of the Corona Virus - this page is being updated several times each week so check here from time to time if you are unsure of the latest news regarding Parish activities! *********
The Parish Book Group resumed from February 11th (at 2pm in the SchoolRoom) and the first book for 2020 is “Inventing Hell ...” by Jon M Sweeney. This group is now in abeyance until the Corona pandemic has passed. If you are interested in joining this discussion group when it resumes meeting, please get in touch with Jenny Dunn (c/o the Parish Office).
The Parish Social Club resumed from February - but is also now in abeyance - as are the monthly Parish Film Nites, usually held in the St Mary's Theatrette,which have been postponed until further notice.
Please also note that from 23rd March 2020 the Christ Church Community Meals Program (CCCMP) will be offering ONLY TAKE-AWAY MEALS AT BOTH BREAKFAST AND EVENING MEAL TIMES, for an indefinite time period. No sit down service will be possible until after the restrictions imposed by the Corona Virus have been lifted; this letter from Jan McGowan sets out the details of the meals arrangements, and also the urgent need for volunteers to keep the CCCMP going.
