Sing with friends and neighbours at this annual event! The Metropolitan Silver Band leads the carolling; a special visitor (Ho, Ho, Ho!) will drop in, and the 132nd Toronto Scouts serve hot chocolate! It’s an outside event, lasting about 45 minutes, so dress warmly and brings a flashlight! (Bad weather location – inside the church!)
Candlelight Service – Sunday, December 11, 7:00 p.m.
Invite your friends and neighbours to this annual Christmas service led by Northlea’s choir. Enjoy music, seasonal readings and Christmas anthems – and a chance to wish each other a Merry Christmas over refreshments following the service.
Christmas Eve Services – December 24
Family Service ~ 7:00 p.m. ~ Come and enjoy this Leaside Christmas Eve tradition with your children, friends and neighbours. Experience the classic Christmas Story in carols and drama, by children. Children can watch from the front and take part! Costumes provided!
Candles and Communion Service ~ 11:00 p.m. ~ A quiet time to reflect on the season, and welcome Christmas Day.
At Northlea United Church, we encourage one another as we:
Love God ~ Connect with others ~ Nurture the spirit ~ Serve the world
We do this through worship and music, children and youth, learning from each other, being part of the community, seeking justice in the world and in God’s creation, caring for others, celebrating the seasons of each year and of our lives, and finding effective ways to seek and discover purpose and meaning in a changed and changing world. This, and much more, is all a part of life at Northlea.
