We’re getting ready for Christmas

Preparations for Christmas have started at Christ Church. The choir have begun preparing the music program for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, which is a highlight in Pretoria's musical calendar, and a uniquely Anglican celebration which is not to be missed. The service will be on the 24th of December 2011, starting at 17:30, and in keeping with tradition, will feature beloved carols and hymns from the middle ages through to modern compositions.

We are also preparing an evening of Christmas cheer on Saturday the 17th of December. Deck The Halls will feature the Christ Church choir singing Christmas favourites, and perhaps something unusual too. The festivities begin at 18:30 in the Parish Hall.

We're also pleased to announce that we will have three visiting organists at Christ Church over Christmas this year. Kevin Kraak will be joining the choir for the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, and Nicol and Martina Viljoen will be joining us for the Midnight Mass and the Choral Eucharist on Christmas Day. All three are regular visitors to Christ Church, and they promise to make lots of noise to get Christmas off to a grand start.

Please check the website and notice boards at church regularly for updates on these events. Visitors to Pretoria are very welcome to join us in our worship over the Christmas period.

Christ Church is located at 820 Pretorius Street, Arcadia, Pretoria. For a map and detailed directions, please visit our map page, or find us on Google Maps as Christ Church Arcadia.
