Dear Parents – For Sunday school today, children should meet in the nursery indoors. Their teachers may take them to the rectory garden (adjoining to the church kitchen) to play, but children will return for Holy Communion and should rejoin their parents at that time (rather than playing outside on the patio). This will help ensure the children’s safety and a worshipful environment for others.

Music concerts at Christ Church. Invite a friend to join you for these evenings of beautiful music, the first concerts in the summer season, organized by our organist Antonio Ortega Rivera and performed by talented young local musicians.
