The splendor of the holiest of nights

Candlelight Christmas Eve

Celebrate Christmas with triumphant music and sacred candlelight

Candlelight Christmas Procession

Our candlelight Christmas Eve services bring the beauty and majesty of the season with the church decked in candles, flowers, and holiday greenery. The music is led by the St. John’s Chorale accompanied by the grand Létourneau organ, brass ensemble, and timpani. Each service is preceded by 15 minutes of Christmas music by organ and brass.

This traditional service features familiar Christmas readings and carols along with joyous choral anthems. Following communion, the congregation passes the light of Christ with candles and sings ‘Silent Night’ in the darkened church. Nursery and childcare are available for the 7 pm service.

After the Service

We invite you to stay after the 7 pm service to enjoy festive beverages and Christmas cookies with your church family and don’t forget to drop into Sumners Hall to see the lovely Christmas Village.
