Spring Bazaar

The annual spring bazaar will be held on 3rd May. We will need volunteers for baking and setting up, selling, cleaning up. Please sign up where possible to lend support in this fund raiser involving 5 churches. Any help will be appreciated. The sign-up sheet will be available next week.

A Choral Evensong was held on 3rd March from 18:00. It was a wonderful service of prayer, meditation and music. If you missed this Evensong, there are two other Evensong services planned - 12th May (4th Sunday after Easter) starting at 6pm and 9th June (Pentecost) also staring at 6pm. Hope you can join us. All welcome.

Sunday School

Children of all ages are welcome at Christ Church!

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. 

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.

YCC Parking

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. 

YCC Groups

Christ Church has a low-traffic Yahoo Group mostly used for announcements and discussion of upcoming events.
