A Quiet Christmas is a special service we usually offer for those who find the holidays to be a difficult time of year – whether due to the loss of loved ones, the shortened days, or stress. As this Christmas will be a difficult one for all of us, I invite you to take in this special time of worship that reflects on the good news that Christ comes as light shining in the darkness.
If you have candles at home, you can take part in the service by lighting one or more for those people and situations who most need the light of Christ in this time.
