O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining. It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth! We celebrate the birth of the holy child under candlelight with the full choir and Canada's largest pipe organ. All with an open heart are welcome at Christ's table for communion. 

Please note that we are currently experiencing challenges with our steam heating system - the temperature in the sanctuary is currently stable and comfortable. However, as the weather gets colder, it is possible that the system won't be able to keep up, and you may feel more comfortable keeping your winter layers on. May the warmth of God's love be with all of us.
