Women's Conference 2023
Welcome to WOCON 2023 – SING a New Song! Kiran Wimberly, who resides in Ireland, will lead this year’s Japan Women’s Conference in “Singing a New Song” on three Saturdays in Lent: March 11 & 18 with a closing worship on March 25. The main keynote talks and worship service will all happen at 4pm JST on Saturdays. 4pm in Japan is 8am for Kiran, so we chose a time when both Ireland and Japan would be wide awake and ready to sing. Last year’s theme, called us to Arise! Now that we are up and breathing deeply, it is time to sing out. The early bird rate for registration has been extended to Sunday, Jan. 15 to accommodate members of your congregation who might want to sign up soon. More information can be found at the Japan Women’s Conference website: https://woconjapan.wordpress.com
We look forward to seeing many of you at our 66th annual women’s conference!
Ukraine Emergency Appeal
USPG and the Church of England Diocese in Europe need your help as we support humanitarian work both in Ukraine and with refugees fleeing into neighbouring countries. Churches and agencies are already responding to the crisis.
This appeal will provide critical funds towards the urgent and immediate needs of people still in Ukraine and those who have left as well as supporting the long-term work of recovery.

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.
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.
