Bethlehem on Yonge
December 24, 2018, 4:00pm
Live Nativity with animals, outdoors in the park at Yorkminster Park followed by hot chocolate and Christmas treats indoors. Bundle up to travel back in time and visit the Stations of the Nativity on the church grounds and meet the characters of the first Christmas along with their entourage of Christmas animals. Yes, the shepherds will be tending their sheep with angels singing nearby. The innkeeper will be guarding the doorway and the soldier's will be patrolling the streets. The magi with their camels will arrive from the east and at last Mary and Joseph holding the infant Christ will be trying to stay warm in a stable with their donkey close by. Once you have visited the stations of the nativity, you will be welcomed in to Cameron Hall for hot chocolate and Christmas music. 

Guided tours of the stations begin at 4 p.m. and continue to be offered until 5:30. Allow 40 minutes for tour and hot chocolate and be sure to bring the children.

New Year's Even Watchnight Service
December 31, 2018, 11:00pm
A watchnight service is a late-night Christian church service. It is held late on New Year's Eve, and ends after midnight. This provides the opportunity for Christians to review the year that has passed and make confession, and then prepare for the year ahead by making new commitments. There is a deep sense of blessing for many that they have begun a new year with their sisters and brothers of the Christian family in God's house.
