The Longest Night Service is held at the time of the Winter Solstice and recognizes that, in what is generally considered a joyous time of the year, many people experience sadness, melancholy and depression. All are welcome.
It may be due to the cold and loneliness of winter, the memories of a lost loved one, the reflection on life's challenges or the concern over a friend or family member.
This service provides a safe place to express and attend to that sadness through meditation, readings, music in a quiet candle lit atmosphere at the front of the sanctuary. The service ends with the offering for anyone to come to light a candle and express out loud or in silence the dedication.
