blanket drive snoopyIt’s time for our annual Blanket and Coat Drive!

We are collecting blankets, jerseys, jackets and other cosy items for those who are going to be cold this winter.

We welcome second-hand items, as long as they are clean and in good condition.

Drop off your goods on Sundays after the services, or at the Parish office during the week.

The drive will run for a month, until the end of June.

Ascension Day is on Thursday 29 May this year. Christ Church will celebrate this day in two services:

Thursday 29 May 9 am: Eucharist

Sunday 1 June 9.15 am: Choral Eucharist


Join us for our second Parish Braai of the year on this Sunday 18 May, after the 9.15 service. Boerewors rolls and tomato gravy will be served, and you are welcome to bring your own meat as well. Feel free to add a salad, cooldrinks or dessert to the table.

See you there!
