MCC Toronto’s Christmas Eve Service

This Christmas, Be Struck With Awe

MCC Toronto’s Christmas  Eve Service is a much cherished  tradition which has been held annually at Roy Thomson Hall since 1990. Senior Pastor  Rev. Jeff Rock will be preaching about the awe of Christmas – from the awful to the awestruck.  Celebrate Diane Leah’s last Christmas Eve Service as Music Director along with  some of Toronto’s finest singing voices as we ring in Christmas in the heart of the city.

Purchase tickets online  or by phoning  416-872-4255  for only $32.75  including service fees. No service fee applies to $25 in-person sales at Roy Thomson Hall or at the church.  Children 12 and under are free (ticket required). Please inform the ticket seller of any accessibility accommodations needed when you purchase tickets.

Auditorium doors will open at 10:00 p.m. followed promptly by Christmas carols at 10:15 p.m.
