On Sunday we welcome to our parish the Ven Fr Palo Thabane and his family.  The normal service times of 07h30 and 09h15 will return.

Please join us for these services to greet our new parish priest.

THE place to be if you are in Gauteng on Christmas Eve is Christ Church Arcadia, where the lovely ceremony of 9 Lessons and Carols will be held at 17:30. Lessons taking us from the Garden of Eden to Bethlehem, with carols and hymns to knit the teaching together - music by John Joubert, John Tavener and Gabriel Jackson feature.

There will also be Midnight Mass at 22:30, a said Eucharist at 07:30 on Christmas Day, and a sung Eucharist at 09:15.

'O Come, Emmanuel: Preparing for Christmas' is our annual service of music and readings for Advent, the church season preceding Christmas. The music includes congregational hymns and choral music sung by the Choir of Christ Church, directed by George King. This year our music includes a first performance at Christ Church of Jonathan Harvey's 2011 setting of Edwin Muir's poem 'The Annunciation', together with James Macmillan's 'O radiant dawn', Gabriel Jackson's 'Tomorrow go ye forth', William Byrd's 'Vigilate' and other works for Advent. All are welcome, and as this is a service there is no charge for admission, though a generous donation in the collection to the parish would be appreciated. Parking is under guard.
