7:00 p.m. Solstice
Service in Metcalf Hall
Gather at 6:30 p.m. on, December 21st, Metcalf Hall (and environs) if you would like a role in the ritual. The
ritual begins at 7:00. Join our extended community as we welcome the darkness and celebrate the returning light on this longest night and shortest day of Winter Solstice. The celebration takes place in Metcalf Hall, with the exception of the wreath burning which takes place in the parking lot!
And then . . .
Singing 8:00 p.m.
How about some old fashioned fun? After we jump the wreath into the new solar year, we’re off to share some holiday spirit with our neighbors in Winchester. Bundle up and join us as we walk through the center of town beguiling all with our rousing renditions of winter classics. We assemble in the back lot at about and will return to the church for mulled cider and fellowship. Don't worry if you don't know any carols, we'll teach you. We hope to see families of all ages there.
