Our music and worship teams have adapted our concerts and services so that families can be together and celebrate the season in a meaningful way. With special events tailored for families, it’s the perfect way to share Christmas traditions with loved ones of any age or generation. We invite all children to come as they are into our home (or join us from your home!) this Christmas.
