Church of the Resurrection will be holding two Christmas Eve services this year. At 5pm on Christmas Eve we will have a family friendly Evening Prayer service. There will not be communion at this service.
We will also have a candlelit Midnight Christmas Eucharistic Service which will begin at 11pm and end shortly after midnight.
There will not be childcare at either service, but the nursery will be open for use by parents.
Church of the Resurrection’s annual Lessons & Carols service will be held on December 15, 2013 at 5pm at Christ Our Shepherd Church. It is one of the highlights of the season together as we sing familiar carols and listen to readings of God’s promises and the story of Jesus’ birth and is a great opportunity to bring friends and family. Nursery care will be provided.
