...Our Regular Sunday and Weekday Services

We worship at Christ Church on Sundays and throughout the week, and our Vicar, supporting clergy and parishioners are all actively involved in worship. In our post-Covid worship (and for other parish meetings and get-togethers) the Parish is required to meet ALL Government and Diocesan directives. However, as at September 2023 there is NO requirement that masks be worn to any services or church activities, although they are advised whenever social distancing is difficult.

Our Regular Services are listed below. During special seasons - Advent-Christmas, January, Easter etc - be sure to check as to whether alternative services, and times, are being offered.






 Sunday Services

Our regular Sunday services are -

8am Eucharist - a quieter service of reflection and prayer, to start the day and the week.....

10am Sung Eucharist - This is usually a sung service including special pieces from the Christ Church Choir from time to time, and organist Winton Barry plays voluntaries each week. Refreshments after services are offered if health regulations allow such gatherings, and if social distancing can be maintained.

5.15pm Eucharist - a simpler Eucharist with some organ accompaniment. (Note that during the holiday period in January each year there is no 5.15pm service)

In addition, there are special services and celebration at various times throughout the year, to mark particular seasons or festivities in the church calendar - click on What's happening now? in the menu for more details.

Weekday Eucharist and Special Services

The Weekday services are an opportunity for quiet reflection and prayer to start or conclude the day, perhaps before going to work or to University, or just as part of your day - just come along and see if this is something that meets your needs!

Tuesday at 7.15pm - Meditation - led by one of the clergy or parishioners, meditation is held in the Side Chapel (entry from the Side door at the eastern/Vicarage end of the Church) - it is an an opportunity for guided mediatation and prayer, and usually lasts about 45 minutes.

Wednesdays at 10am - Eucharist - led by one of our clergy minstry team, the service includes a brief sermon and Holy Communion. Some services include background music provided by a parishioner.



access to the church & its buildings - the Christ Church main door (facing west towards Moorabool Street) has three steps to enter, but the Southern Porch door (which opens mid way along the main body of the church) has a ramp and full wheelchair access (enter from the McKillop Street/southern side of the church). There is reserved parking for carers etc. alongside the church. The Parish Hall located to the north of the church building has full wheelchair access via a ramp from the adjacent car park. Toilet facilities (including facilities allowing disabled access) are available inside the church itself, and external toilets (male and female) are located at the eastern end of the Parish Hall.

There is parking inside the church grounds (entry from McKillop Street) for all Sunday services, but parking in the church grounds is very limited during the week. Parking is available in adjacent streets but check local parking signs as generally parking restrictions apply, including at weekends.
