News from Christ Church

ANNOUNCEMENT

It has been announced that our priest, Fr Andrew Dangerfield will be leaving Yokohama to take up a new post with the Mission to Seafarers in the Middle East later this year. Fr. Andrew came to Christ Church in August 2012 and has enjoyed almost six years as our priest. He spoke at Church about his time here and what a fantastic place Christ Church is. His final Sunday at Church will be Sunday 6th May after which he will prepare to move to begin his new assignment in August. In the meantime, the Mission to Seafarers has already identified a new chaplain to replace him and once the details have been confirmed with the relevant authorities we will be able to let you know who he is. In the meantime, let us pray for our congregation at this time of transition that God will guide our steps for the future.

LENT PROGRAMME 2018

During Lent we will hold a special Study group every Sunday beginning on the 18th February. The Study group starts after coffee time in the Rectory for those who’d like to attend. We are joining with the Church of England's course that also includes a daily challenge. Booklets are available at Church and there's also an APP you can put on your phone or sign up for daily emails.

More information can be found here.

Sunday School

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. 

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 Groups

Christ Church has a low-traffic Yahoo Group mostly used for announcements and discussion of upcoming events. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ycc/
