We’re excited to be doing Christmas Eve online via Zoom this year. We’ve got some fun for all ages planned. We hope you can join us with your warm drink in hand, a candle ready to be lit, and hearts full of anticipation for the arrival of Jesus!
December 24, 6pm via Zoom.
Watch your email for the link to the Zoom meeting which will be sent out within 48 hours beforehand. If you don’t get emails from WCV, please contact the office to receive the Zoom link.
As we enter the Christmas week with all of its hustle and bustle, we’d like to direct your attention to the services that will be offered at the Vineyard over the holidays.
This Sunday, December 23rd, we will have our usual Sunday service beginning at 10:00am. This gathering will include worship, a message and communion – as always. There will also be a community art project taking place throughout the course of the morning. (You can read more about that here.) *Please note that the service will be slightly shorter than normal as there is no Kids Church this week. The children will remain in the sanctuary.
We will also have a Christmas Eve service on Monday, December 24th, at 6:00pm. This will be a simple and beautiful gathering with worship, readings and a litany, as well as space for contemplation and celebration. The service will commence in a communal lighting of the candles and will end by 7:00pm.
Wherever you find yourself over this Christmas season, we wish you love, joy, fellowship and peace.
God is with us.
Hey folks! So the Christmas season is upon us once again! (Hold on as I pour myself another mug of eggnog).
Below are a few events I’d like to highlight that will be happening at the Vineyard for this 2017 Christmas season:
- Our kids and youth will be leading us in worship and throughout the morning on December 10th for our annual Kids Service Sunday.
- On December 17th right after the service we want to celebrate and feast together as a family and community for the annual Christmas Feast!
- On December 24th, as it is both a Sunday and Christmas Eve, we will gather in the morning for a shortened Christmas Eve Service from 10-11:15 a.m. Please note there will be no evening service on this day.
- We will also have a shortened service on December 31st from 10-11:15 a.m. for a New Year’s Eve Service.
Through all the hustle and bustle that the Christmas season brings, let’s remember our Centre, whom we are celebrating.
Every Christmas Eve, as other families across the world gather around a Christmas tree, we, as a church body, gather together to celebrate Christ’s birth. We remember and celebrate The One who Came by singing Christmas carols and lighting the last advent candle. This service is a candle lit service, where every family is welcome, and everyone will get their own individual candle.
We encourage you to come and celebrate with us as one body. But if you can’t make it, take a step back from the busyness of Christmas and remember the One, Jesus Christ, who came down as an infant child to dwell with us.
The service will be on Thursday, December 24th, 2015, 6:00 – 7 p.m.
