Together we move forward towards the Christmas season
In the Christian calendar we are now moving steadily towards the celebration of Christ's birth with the coming Christmas season. On 8th October we celebrated the 174th Anniversary of the laying of the Foundation Stone at Christ Church - the Celebrant and Preacher that day was Fr Barry and you can hear his words to the congregations here -
(note that your sound volume may need to be adjusted - and as the recording was made live at Christ Church some some background noise is audible).
Other recent celebrations have included the Blessing of the Pets on 1st October , whilst All Saints/ All Souls Day will be celebrated at on Sunday 5th November.
Whilst Fr Russell Trickey is on leave (October) Fr John, Fr Barry and Fr Andrew are conducting the Sunday and weekday services, which continue as usual. In Fr Russell's absence pastoral, bereavement or sacramental matters should be directed to Fr John or Fr Barry, and other church business matters to the Parish Wardens Evelyn or Don. For more details contact the Parish Office - or check the weekly Parish Press bulletins available at each service or in the church.
The CAFS services continue on the first Sunday of each month at 9.30am throughout the year, and all families and children are very welcome! The next CAFServices are on Sunday 5th November and Sunday 3rd December - and there will be special CAFS Christmas celebrations as part of the Parish Christmas festivities.
CAFS begins in the church at 9.30am and, after a short talk and a song, moves into the SchoolRoom for activities and songs. Come and join in CAFS each month!
On a social note, the Christ Church Social Club meets each month and regular Film Nites are ruunning throughout the year. You can find out more details through the Parish Office, or watch this page and the weekly Parish Press (available at all services) for further details of services, any changes and other parish celebrations and activities.
Christ Church (Anglican) is on the corner of Moorabool and McKillop Streets in Geelong - you can find out about all the other things happening at Christ Church by following the links from the menu at the left on this page.
