All are invited

Christmas Eve – Monday, December 24 
 
Children’s Christmas Eve Pageant - 4pm

Hearing the Christmas Story Anew
Tidings of great joy! Experience the wonder and joy of Christmas as our children and youth proclaim the Christmas story in drama and song. All sing carols and praises together as we encounter angels and shepherds, and of course, the baby Jesus born in Bethlehem. Young children are invited to participate and visit the baby Jesus as shepherds and angels (click here to sign up). Our service culminates with a simple sharing of communion for all.

Christmas in the Still of the Night
For the people who walked in darkness have seen a great light! In the still of the night we gather to sing and pray in celebration. We will hear again of God's light coming to us in Jesus. We will sing carols that lift our hearts with the Choirs of St Paul's and accompanied by strings and organ. We will receive the gift of Jesus as we share communion.
