Children get involved in St. Peter’s Christmas services

Three services Dec. 24, one on Christmas day

Dressing up and taking part in events is a feature of childhood.

In recognition of this, St. Peter’s Church in Comox is inviting all children who attend their 6 p.m. Christmas Eve service to dress-up and take part in a nativity play.

While the main roles will be cast and rehearsed ahead of time, any child who wishes to take part will be invited to be an angel or shepherd as the nativity story is acted out. Simple costumes are provided. The 6 p.m. service will also feature candle-lighting, special music, carol singing and drama.

At 4 p.m., the service will centre around the creche. Storytelling will help to bring alive some of the characters at the manger scene.

The 10:30 p.m. service will begin in candlelight. This traditional late-night service will celebrate the light of the world coming into our darkness.

Also on Christmas Eve, there will be a morning service at 10:30 a.m.

This service follows the BCP Eucharist order. It is a quieter, more reflective service with no music.

And finally, on Christmas Day, a traditional service to celebrate the birth of Christ will be held at 10 a.m. with carols and communion.

St. Peter’s Church in Comox is located at 218 Church St. For more information, call 250-338-2925 or 329-6416.
