Suspension of Worship in Church
Following guidance from the Kanagawa prefectural government, the Diocese of Yokohama has asked for the suspension of 'in-person' services.
This means that our Celebration of the Holy Eucharist will return to an ONLINE STREAM ONLY.
With the introduction of the fourth State of emergency (SoE) it now seems unlikely that we will be able to return to in-person services until the SoE has been lifted.
Sunday 26th September
Nine Lessons & Carols
If you would like to take part in our virtual choir for our Service of Nine Lessons & Carols in December please let us know. You can sign up HERE and we will send you the details and instructions for recording.
Because of the ongoing problems caused by the Coronavirus pandemic it seems that we will be unable to have an 'in-person' service this year. But we intend to prepare in a virtual way and share the service via our Youtube channel.
Children of all ages are welcome at Christ Church! For more information of Sunday school activities please contact Audrey Brown
Church Flowers and Cleaning
YCC continues to provide flowers, normally for the 1st Sunday of the month, subject to Yamate Sei Ko Kai events and schedule. Contact Noriko Hasegawa if you would donate flowers on a future date.Since we are a small congregation, YSK do not expect us to join the regular roster for cleaning but we did pledge full support twice a year, at which time please lend your support; many hands make light work and a couple of hours will be much appreciated.
Please park your cars in the lot next to the Parish Hall. The parking lot on the Rectory side of the church is reserved for YSKK members.
Making Music ~ Praising God!
If you would like to contribute to the music ministry here at Christ Church please send us a message through the contact page. You can sign up to our weekly email that includes the hymns for the coming Sunday. We welcome all instruments, so long as you're prepared to turn up for the practice on Sundays at 9am.
John Berg's memoirs
We are pleased to have copies of John Berg's memoirs available at Christ Church. Entitled 'One More Step' the book offers a fascinating insight into his journey thus far. If you want a copy, they're available in the Rectory during coffee hour. A donation
to cover the printing costs is requested - ¥500
