Water and Wilderness Church is a liturgical response to the climate crisis and a worship designed for seekers, believers, and anyone who finds connection to God in nature. It is a relational service with prayer, singing, walking, and Eucharist.

Bring your friends and your dogs and walk in the wilderness with us!

Advent Lessons & Carols

Advent Lessons & Carols

On Sunday, December 3, the Choir of St. John’s Norwood will offer a Service of Lessons and Carols for Advent at 5:00 pm. This yearly event is a special time for both quiet reflection and joyful expectation.

Like the format of the beloved Christmas Lessons and Carols service, each lesson will be read by members of the congregation followed by a hymn/carol as well as an anthem sung by the choir. The service is intended to be a time of spiritual preparation, as we watch and wait for the coming of the Kingdom of God. Through our experience of sacred Word and music, the story of the coming of Christ gradually unfolds and deepens our understanding of God’s message of love and redemption. Although most of the lessons are from the Old Testament, they are familiar words and stories that conclude with the appearance of the Angel Gabriel to Mary.

A reception will follow the service.
