Dust off your ride and cruise back in time to the Drive-In days. You are invited to join Event Chair Margaret Trimer and Event Vice-Chair Thomas Shafer for a 1950’s themed evening out with friends and supporters from the safety of your car at The Samaritas Summer Drive-In. During the evening, Samaritas will be presenting Christ Church Cranbrook with the Congregational Partner Award.



You will be sock hoppin’ and bee boppin’ to the all the classic tunes with live entertainment while sippin’ on root beer floats in your bomber jacket or poodle skirt and watching a movie under the stars all from the safety of your own car. Got a classic car that’s been tucked away all winter? Don’t miss your chance to cruise down to the Drive In and show off that ride in style!

Updated details for fall programming to come.

The selection for September is Notre-Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) by Victor Hugo. We hope you will join us for one of the greatest historical romances of the nineteenth century.  We will meet at this Zoom link: christchurchcranbrook-org.zoom.us/j/95813124577

In the vaulted Gothic towers of Notre-Dame Cathedral lives Quasimodo, the hunchbacked bell ringer. Mocked and shunned for his appearance, he is pitied only by Esmerelda, a beautiful gypsy dancer to whom he becomes completely devoted. Esmerelda, however, has also attracted the attention of the sinister archdeacon Claude Frollo, and when she rejects his lecherous approaches, Frollo hatches a plot to destroy her, that only Quasimodo can prevent. Victor Hugo’s evocative novel brings life to the medieval Paris he loved, and mourns its passing in one of the greatest historical romances of the nineteenth century.

Led by Pastor Manisha and Victoria Laurenzi-Jump, MSW, Pastoral Care Associate. To register, please email Pastor Manisha Dostert at mdostert@christchurchcranbrook.org.

Have you experienced a death of a loved one? Each meeting we discuss together the essential touchstones of grief. Using Understanding Your Grief by Dr. Alan Wolfelt, we help one another by exploring our feelings of loss and understanding the grief process that is unique to every person.

Nothing to prepare – beginners welcome!
