EVERYTHING ADVENT

Advent is the season leading up to Christmas and it’s the absolute best. We’ll be walking through Advent all of December and we’d love to have you join us as we sing hymns and break bread. We’ve also got a lot of events coming up to help us recognize the season.

If you are new to our community, welcome to our "Everything" page. Below you can find out all that is happening in the next few months in our community. 

If there are any unanswered questions by the end of this, feel free to email Pastor Jill (jill@eucharistchurch.ca), Pastor Kevin (kevin@eucharistchurch.ca) or the Elders (elders@eucharistchurch.ca) and they will make sure to answer your questions!

Christmas Eve w/ St Cuthbert’s + The Meeting House

We are excited to partner with two other congregations in order to our Christmas Eve service. Join us for an evening of music, poetry, and candle lighting as we re-enter the story of God with us.

There will be snacks and refreshments to follow. Please feel free to bring something to share.

Monday, December 24
130 Victoria Ave N,
Hamilton, Ontario
6-7pm

Blue Christmas Service

For many of us Christmas is not fundamentally a time of celebration or joy, but a time of grief and burden. We want to name this reality and create a space for lament and peace in the pain.

The evening will include candle lighting, song, and silence in the stillness.

Wednesday, December 12
130 Victoria Ave N,
Hamilton Ontario
Service starts at 8pm

NEW SERMON SERIES | ADVENT 2018

Logo Picture.jpeg

Christmas music is a mixed bag. For every classic there’s a dozen misses, most of which seem more rooted in greed or sentimentality than the mystery of God with us.

Christmas hymns, however, are an entirely different story. These songs, sung by Christians around the world, have a deep and transformative theology, inviting us to literally sing through the story of incarnation. While the theological depth of these songs is profound they are also really fun to sing together. Like that part that goes “FAAAALLLLLL OOON YOUR KNEEEEESSSSS!” That’s the best.

This advent we’re going to get into the music by singing, but also through study. Each Sunday we’ll dive into a different hymn in order to better understand the story of Christ. Also, our artist teams are hard at work creating an installation piece that will allow us to become a living hymnal together. It’s going to be a good season.
