Christmas Eve

with Rio Terrace Church

Our Christmas Eve services are an expression of hope, peace, joy, and love at Christmas time, on December 24, 2023.

The 4:30 pm service is a "Children's Lovefeast", especially suitable for young children, which features a snack, singing, story, and hands-on activities. Its fun and spirited for all ages!

The 6 pm and 8 pm "Carols and Candles" services feature the Christmas story and songs by candlelight, warmth and good cheer. Come, celebrate the birth of Christ, with us! The 6 pm service will feature our choir, and is held in person and online. The 8 pm service will have some jazzy flare, and will be a celebration of Holy Communion. 


A Christmas Offering will be taken and distributed equally to the Bissel Centre, an Edmonton-based charity supporting people experiencing homelssness, as well as Star of Rammallah, a Moravian ministry in the West Bank, serving people with intellectual and physical disabilities, regardless of religious or cultural background.


Rio Terrace Church is a progressive, affirming, neighbourhood oriented church, focused on living by Christ's example of compassion and peacemaking. We hope that all will find welcome here.

Please note that there will be no service on Christmas Day.
