The Season of Advent

As we draw near to the end of the year we prepare to enter the Holy season of Advent. Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of Christ at Christmas. Amidst all the noise of a secular season we would do well to focus our hearts and minds on the spiritual meaning of this time of the year. To assist with this, please feel free to download our Advent leaflet that contains thoughts and prayers for the season.

YCC Track'n'Trace

We are preparing to resume our YCC fellowship and coffee time in the Rectory after our Sunday morning Eucharist. In order to do this in a safe and careful way we invite you to register your details beforehand.
For those who are not fully vaccinated we kindly ask that you take a quick and easy saliva based lateral flow test beforehand that is available at Church free of charge.
Depending on the infection levels locally we hope to resume our fellowship in a few weeks time.

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.

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. 

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. 

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
