Christmas Eve At Sherwood Park Alliance Church

The Christmas moments we cherish the most are the ones we share together! Sherwood Park Alliance is excited to welcome you, your family, and friends to experience the story of Christmas with one another. The awe and wonder of the shepherds as the angels shared the good news of hope and peace in Jesus' birth! Invite your friends and family to celebrate through beautiful worship, art and words.

Our Christmas Eve services are for the whole family and are always a special time for kids to experience the Christmas story. Nursery will be open for children age 2 and under at all Christmas Eve services. All older children are invited to join their families in the auditorium. There will be a child-friendly environment, with limited space available, for families with preschool aged children in the north balcony. We look forward to celebrating with you this Christmas!

Join us on December 23 at 6 PM, or December 24 at 2, 4, or 6 PM to celebrate Christmas together. There will be family photos, live music and more!

This year the offering received at the Christmas Eve Services will be going to For Freedom International. This organization was started “with a dream to see the marginalized, vulnerable, and exploited set free from the injustice of oppression.” Working in Phuket, Thailand, FFI is focused on “growing a public awareness and education campaign in Thai public schools to help provide sexual education, anti-trafficking awareness, [and] after school support programs for children, and families at risk.” Funds collected will go towards a building project to provide boys who have been rescued from human trafficking a safe home. You can make your donations here on December 23 and December 24.

Justice and Compassion Christmas Projects

As the Christmas season approaches, there will be many way to engage in giving by participating in one or more projects that our Justice and Compassion team is leading.

International Workers Christmas Cards - Each Christmas we as a church come together to express and encourage our International Workers.

Ways to participate are:
You can sign one the digital cards.
Write your own separate note of encouragement on a card of your choosing, for the International workers, and drop it off at the church.
Email your encouragements and Christmas greetings to Annemarie and we'll add them to the e-cards for you (please include who each of the messages is for).

Cards can be picked up or dropped off or dropped of at the church during office hours or around a weekend service December 17/18.

Cards are due back January 2, 2023.

Family News - Serve Opportunity

There are a couple of families in our church family who would like help with meals to get them through a time of illness. We are looking for volunteers who could pick up gift cards from the church to purchase ingredients or store made meals and then deliver them. Both families have dietary concerns that need to be considered. If you are able to help, please contact Alison Blackley at
