After five months of sharing worship remotely via our YouTube channel, we are beginning to have in-person worship services again! Services will be held outdoors, be limited to 25 people and pre-registration is required.
Our next such service will be held Sunday September 13th. Details to follow. (September 6th worship will be online in our YouTube channel.) To learn about upcoming outdoor services, call the church office (201-652-2350).
Please contact the church before attending one of these services. Do not simply show up without registering. We must adhere to guidelines from the State of NJ and the Diocese of Newark, to protect all of our safety.
We will continue to share in multiple online worship offerings, as well as discussion forums and phone-based meetings. We will continue to worship Christ - outdoors, online, in new ways - together. Nothing can stop that.

In John’s Gospel, appointed for today, we read of Jesus’ well known discourse with Nicodemus including the words “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son…” Today, Christ Church Choir will sing a setting of these words by Bob Chilcott.
Chilcott, has been described as “a contemporary hero of British Choral Music”, and has become one of the most widely performed composers and arrangers of choral music in the world. He has a large catalogue of works published by Oxford University Press which reflects his broad range in musical styles and his skill to writing music that is both singable and communicative.
He has been involved in choral music most of his life beginning as a chorister and then a choral scholar in the choir of King's College, Cambridge, and between 1985 and 1997 was a member of the British vocal group The King's Singers for whom he made a number of popular arrangements of well-known songs from all genres. He has been a full time composer since 1997. His very relaxed and accessible style has earned him the admiration of music listeners, not just in Britain and the US, but throughout the world.
The Jubilation Choir is open to boys and girls 5th grade through high school. The choir performs on Youth Sundays and special services during the program year. The choir rehearses after the 10:00 am service from 11:15 to noon in the choir room. Schola Cantorum also invites those interested to learn to play our set of hand chimes and other instruments while developing musicianship skills.
On behalf of the Wardens, Vestry and Christ Church family, Fr. Tom is happy to announce that Christ Church has found our new Curate, and her name is Jill Williams! She began her ministry with Christ Church formally on February 1, 2020. We are delighted to formally welcome Jill and her wife, Paula!
