A Solstice Service for the Season

For over thousands of years people have gathered on the eve of Winter Solstice to celebrate the rebirth of the sun. Today we gather to be nurtured and held during the longest night and begin to look forward to the light returning. From out of the darkness and cold, light and hope return. Join us as we slow down, sit in silence together and rest when the wheel turns.

Solstice Service

For thousands of years people have gathered on the eve of the winter solstice to celebrate the rebirth of the sun. Today we gather to be nurtured and held during the longest night and begin to look forward to the light returning. From out of the darkness and cold, light and hope return. Join us as we slow down, sit in silence together and rest when the wheel turns. We’ll gather to walk the labyrinth and join in ritual to honour the gifts of the night and to celebrate the return of the light. 

We welcome everyone to our service. This year we will be holding the event at Sanford Hall, Kwomais Point Regional Park, 1367 – 128 Street, South Surrey (near Ocean Park Shopping Center). We’ll start the labyrinth walk at 4pm. The annual Solstice Ritual led by Rev. Samaya will begin at 5pm.
