Holy Eucharist | Rite I @ Nave
Dec 17 @ 8:00 am – 8:45 am

The 8 am worship service uses the Holy Eucharist Rite I order of worship from our prayer book. In this service, you will find the beautiful and full language which still speaks strongly through the Holy Spirit almost a century after it was introduced in the 1928 prayer book. This service is absent of music and allows for quiet contemplation, prayer and worship within the powerful structure and words of Rite I.

Blue Christmas Service @ Nave
Dec 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Blue Christmas Service @ Nave | Warrenton | Virginia | United States

A Blue Christmas Service acknowledges that Christmas is not always met with joy and celebration. Sometimes it can be difficult to participate in the glad carols and merriment of our Christmas services.

This service provides an opportunity to light candles acknowledging the people we miss, the pain or emptiness we may feel.

In lighting the candles we proclaim Christ’s presence and that foundational truth from that first chapter of John that “the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it”.

We sing carols more reflective of Christmas hope than joy, we offer prayers for healing, we break bread together and (of course) we support one another.

Following the service there will be opportunity for continued prayer in the chapel and coffee and dessert in the parish hall.

Bring the family and enjoy the reenactment of the Birth of Jesus. All children are encouraged to participate

Please arrive 15 minutes early for your child to be fitted for a costume. No prior rehearsal needed.

This service is especially geared toward preschool and elementary age children but a joy to all!

Christmas Eve Family Service with Eucharist @ Nave

Christmas Eve Family Service with Eucharist @ Nave | Warrenton | Virginia | United States

At 5:00 we will have a festive yet still informal and abridged Christmas celebration as we incorporate children and youth into the worship service.

This service is intended for individuals and families whose children have aged out of the pageant (upper elementary and up) but find the hour of the late service…. well…just a bit too late.

The service will also include Holy Eucharist and the singing of familiar carols.
