Christmas at Lakeside

Join us for one of three Christmas Eve services – Interrupting Christmas – here at Lakeside as we tell the story of a God who, from day one, has loved us so completely, so unabashedly, so relentlessly. It is a reminder in a season of hustle and bustle that God is not one more “to do,” one more box we need to check, one more person who demands our attention, but instead, he is pursuing us.

At each service there will be Christmas songs, a short message, and the night will end with a candlelight singing of a traditional Christmas carol. Please stay after the service (or come early) to take a family picture in our holiday photo booth!

Common Questions

Q. What can I expect?

A. Each service is about an hour long. We’ll sing a few Christmas songs, there will be a short message from one of our pastors, and the night will end with a candlelight singing of a traditional Christmas carol. Please stay after the service (or come early) to take a family picture in our holiday photo booth!

Q. Where should I park?

A. If you’re coming to our north site (Lakeside Central), come in the second driveway (just past the sign). There will be friendly volunteers in brightly coloured vests waiting to help you park. If you need to drop someone off at the front door (it can be a bit of a walk to the main entrance, especially in the winter) or you need to park in one of our special needs spots, just put on your left signal and we’ll take care of you!

If you’re planning to visit our downtown site (Lakeside Downtown), there is street parking along Cork Street and other downtown streets.

Q. What do I wear?

A. Our culture is casual but we invite you to dress however you are most comfortable.

Q. Is there a program for my kids?

A. Our Christmas Eve services are geared toward families, so your children are encouraged to join you in the service. They are welcome to move around, dance, clap, and otherwise enjoy themselves. It’s Christmas – a time for celebration!


We look forward to seeing you on Christmas Eve.
