Happy Halloween from Christ Church!

Christ Church, Ridgewood NJ, is a welcoming community of Christians of all ages from across Bergen County.

Every Sunday from 9:15-9:45 we hold a special service for young children and their families, called Joy! Children sit around the altar, hear stories, pray, sing, dance--and sometimes wear costumes!

Come and see what God is doing here at Christ Church! And show us what God is doing in you!

Upcoming Events

Advent Lessons & Carols

December 8, 5:00PM

Advent Lessons & Carols

Christ Church Choir will sing a service of Advent Lessons and Carols on Sunday, December 8 at 5 pm, the Second Sunday of Advent. Advent is a season of both quiet reflection and joyful expectation. This service of scripture lessons prophesying the birth of Christ with carols echoing the readings, is intended to be a time of spiritual preparation, as we watch and wait for the coming of the Kingdom of God.

The choir will sing works by Willcocks, Archer, Stainer, Carter and many others. Join us to hear the promises of Holy Scripture and powerful music to propel us quietly to the wonder of Christmas.

Music & Liturgy Notes

November 10

Organist and Choir

Today, as we observe our Stewardship Ingathering Sunday, pledging to support the vital ministries of Christ Church, we’ll sing the hymn “Take my life and let it be consecrated” by the 19th Century hymn writer and poet, Frances Ridley Havergal. Havergal was also an accomplished pianist and singer, and attributed her great gifts to her Creator in whose service she employed them teaching, writing and conducting religious meetings.

Her hymn “Take my life” originated during a visit to Areley House in Worcestershire, England in 1874. In her words: "There were ten persons in the house; some were unconverted and long prayed for, some converted but not rejoicing Christians. [God] gave me the prayer, 'Lord, give me all in this house.' And He just did. Before I left the house, everyone had got a blessing. The last night of my visit I was too happy to sleep and passed most of the night in renewal of my consecration, and those little couplets formed themselves and chimed in my heart one after another till they finished with "ever only, ALL FOR THEE!"

Jubilation Choir
