  • for those who will visit the Advent Chapel, for volunteers providing hospitality


  • to welcome visitors for a 3 hour shift on a Thursday or Friday (3pm-9pm) or Saturday or Sunday (noon-5pm)
  • to help with set up (Nov 21-Dec 1) or take down (early January)
  • to offer music, a workshop, art, devotional, meditations

A number of skilled and generous people have already committed to leading workshops, offering music, art, devotionals, and worship moments. If you have something to offer that you think would be a good fit, please let Rhonda know!

  1. I’m in Newfoundland, so can’t really be involved. But I’m following your website and your Advent devotionals are adding a lot to my Christmas. For the first time in years, it feels like a season to celebrate and not just a season like any other season with only the tree and the gifts and the fancy dress parties to differentiate it.

    Merry Christmas,
