blue-christmas-2016Blue Christmas Service Dec. 11 at 7:00 p.m.: It’s the most wonderful time of the year…unless it isn’t. For many, this season is not a joyful one, but a time that highlights loneliness, depression or loss. This year we are holding a Blue Christmas service, a liturgy that creates space to hold the places of our sorrow, pain, burdens, fears, worries, and losses. A candle-lit service with music, poetry, prayers, silence and scripture. All are welcome. If you would like more information, please feel free to contact Mother Sarah.

epiphanyEpiphany – the season of revelation, after the Glory of Christmas – Jan. 8 at 5 p.m.: A date for your calendar, because dear ones you will not want to be away for this wondrous celebration. We, like the Wise Ones of old, have opportunity to bring our gifts from the heart, to the Christ Child.

Join us on Sunday, January 8 at 5pm for a moving liturgy with music, readings, and enactment; a modest ‘burning of the greens’,followed by a simple but sumptuous meal together, fit ‘for a King’. Why not invite a friend or neighbors to join us?
More details will follow. For more information, please contact Alison Forbes.
