the Sentence for this week is -
"Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all"
and in the Parish Press for this Sunday, the 19th September 2021, Fr Russell writes....
"...Then [Jesus] came to a small child and said anyone who receives such a child in my name receives me and God who sent me. By this, Jesus meant that we should see no one as inferior. ... All people are equally dear to God no matter what they are or who they are, and so Jesus is saying we please God and serve God by serving anyone and everyone.. ...."To read the full Parish Press for this week just click here - or collect your copy from church!

... worshipping at Christ Church....
... although there has been some relaxtion of restrictions in Regional Victoria, including Geelong, due to very limited numbers allowed at any services our Sunday and weekday services are NOT BEING HELD at present. Services will resume as soon as permitted numbers allow this - and as further changes in restrictions are made they will be announced here.
...but in the meantime we can all worship from our homes, as part of a faith community .... and from this page you can -
share in a Eucharist service recorded for the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost for you to use at home - this week Fr Russell has recorded a shortened Eucharist service, , and you can share in this service here - or you can just listen to Fr Russell's Sermon if you prefer. You can also watch or listen to earlier sermons/addresses from 2021 (scroll down to the date you're looking for - a sermon is recorded most weeks).
re-visit the Eucharist service recorded in Christ Church for the 17th Sunday after Pentecost in 2020 - actually recorded on 27th September 2020 under the Covid restrictions that applied at that time, when Fr Russell was Celebrant and Preacher and his sermon was "by what authority do you do these things?".
read the current Parish Press for this week, read/download the latest Chronicle, or read/download the current Melbourne Anglican Magazine; The next Chronicle has been mailed out but if you missed out there are spare copies at the church when you next visit!
find lots of resources for use in your worship at home, including a home Eucharist Service or Morning Prayer service, together with some of your favourite hymns sung at Christ Church services in recent times.

But keep checking this page - it is updated at least weekly.
