Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

Sun, Dec 24 • 10:00 pm

Sanctuary

The season of Advent comes to a close and we step up to that moment when we celebrate the mystery and wonder of the birth of Jesus.

On Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24 at 10 pm, let yourself be transported by inspiring music, powerful preaching and the sounds of familiar carols surrounded by the gentle light of candles. Take in the quiet majesty of the season. Reconnect with what is most important in this season.

The service will be held in the Sanctuary with string quartet and organ music beginning at 9:30 pm. Other musical highlights including selections by the Sanctuary Choir.

Come even if you have never been here before! No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome at First Church Berkeley.

Cookies and fellowship will follow the service in the Pillar Room. 

First Church also offers an All Ages Christmas Eve Service at 4 pm and Christmas Eve in the Cloister at 6 pm outside of the Sanctuary.
