7pm Night Service – Lights in Darkness

Christmas is not always a time of merriment and cheer, and many will feel dislocated from the tidings of comfort and joy. For many this season may bring pain, and conflict, feelings of loss and grief, isolation, uncertainty and anxiety. 

At this service, we will name the darkness in the world that surrounds us, and pray for the coming of Christ’s light. This liturgy journeys through the Christmas story as told in Luke and John, and includes the lighting of candles. download the service booklet
