Silent Nights

Traveler's Christmas Worship

Traveling on Christmas Eve and Day? You can still enjoy a Christmas worship service with your New York City faith community here at Advent. This will look a lot like our 8pm candlelight worship on Christmas Eve, with carols, candles, and a Christmas message.

Silent Nights


December gets busy. Here is some time for peace, meditation, and worship, to help you get your heart into the Christmas spirit before it rushes by.

Prayer, meditation, reflection, quiet. This season we'll gather for our own kind of Christmas preparation in the sanctuary. It's in every way opposite of the Christmas preparations happening outside in the Christmas markets and stores. As shopping lists and stores fill up to capacity, we seek to create space. Space for what's most important, for you, for God. If you find yourself needing some space this holiday season, come join our "Silent Nights" on Wednesday evenings.



Dates | Wednesdays, 12/6 & 12/13

Time | 7pm

Three unique Christmas Eve worship services

on Sunday, December 24



No-Prep Christmas Pageant

Grab a costume, follow our lead, and join us on a Christmas storytelling adventure in this fun and festive Christmas Eve worship service. This worship is great for kids and family, but 100% open to adults. Whatever your age, if you want a fun and interactive Christmas Eve worship experience, come join this intergenerational no-prep Christmas Pageant and worship.



Candlelight Worship

Celebrate Christmas surrounded by the light of Christmas Trees and candles, and the sounds of Christmas carols. Our Advent Chorale and musicians will enrich our music, and an array of speakers will bring the Christmas story to life, making its inherent hope and joy resonate with us in a way at once familiar and new.



Midnight Mass (in Spanish)

A timeless tradition of awaiting Christmas until the stroke of midnight. Join us for a special late-night service awaiting the dawn of Christmas with hymns, prayers, and God's Word. This service will be in Spanish, as many members of our congregation and community are Spanish-speakers. However people of all Spanish-language abilities are invited to be part of this special service.
