Journey with Us this Season
We start Advent on Sunday, December 2 with services at 8:00, 9:30 and 11:00am. The chancel is decorated in royal blue, the first of the Advent candles is lit, and we begin to set the stage for the arrival of the Jesus child. We also have a Evensong service that evening at 7:00pm.
Enter into the Advent season with a contemplative awareness of the great gift that God has given us. Try our Advent Oasis service on Wednesday, December 5 at 7:00pm.
Sunday, December 16 (11:00am) is our annual service of Advent Lessons & Carols. Enjoy readings and choral music to mark the midpoint of the Advent season. Hear the good news of Christmas.
On the day before the eve of Christmas, that is, Sunday, December 23, we have only two services: the usual 8:00am service and a combined 10:30am service. You might think that this would be a “low Sunday” in terms of attendance, but it’s a joyful time of worship and fellowship as we come together and recognize that something wonderful is about to happen.
Christmas Eve Services are the highlight of the year for many parishioners and visitors to All Saints.
On December 24, the interior of All Saints is sparkling with colour and light and joy; the outside is still and majestic and dark. Once again, we are invited to put aside the rush and frenzy of secular seasonal preparations and instead put our relationship with God at the centre of Christmas. Recognizing it’s sometimes tricky to fit it all in, we offer three services to make it work for you: the children’s service at 4:00pm and the traditional Eucharist services at 7:00pm and 10:00pm. (Note the new 10pm time for the late service.)
And finally, Christmas Day is the day that crowns the season. On December 25, the Eucharist Service will be at 10:30am. Come to church and celebrate that the infant king is born.
Embrace the spiritual riches of the season at All Saints. Discover how much the good news means to you at Christmas and enter into a relationship with God (again or for the first time) that will carry you into the year ahead.
Blessings upon you as we travel through this Advent Season towards Christmas. We hope your plans include All Saints.
