This coming Sunday, 5 February 2012, Christ Church will be celebrating its Dedication Festival. The service this year will be particularly special, as this Sunday falls on the exact date that the foundation stone of our church building was laid in 1906.

There will be a special combined Choral Eucharist service at 08:30, and a Festival Evensong at 18:00.

The Music for the morning service will include a world premiere of O most merciful, a motet by Pascal Martine, commissioned specially for the Christ Church Choir, and William Harris' anthem Behold, the tabernacle of God.

Please join us for this very special occasion.

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.

A reminder that our Annual Vestry Meeting will take place this Sunday 5 February 2012 after the service. There will only be one service at 08.30.

After the meeting, there is a bring and share braai. This is a wonderful opportunity for the parish to fellowship and to get to know each other. Father Duncan encourages all to try and stay for the braai and enjoy a relaxing afternoon.

The youth will be offering a car wash during the braai.
