Christmas Services

Our Christmas Eve service will be pre-recorded and available for viewing beginning at 5:00 pm on December 24th.  Click here to go to our video worship service page.  Once there, look for the video labeled December 24, 2020 – Christmas Eve and click on it.

On Sunday, December 27th, St. Alban’s will not have a pre-recorded service, but instead we encourage you to join with the thousands of Episcopalians in the Diocese of Virginia for a Service of Lessons and Carols.  The service is available on YouTube or Facebook  starting at 8:00 am on December 27th.   A downloadable service bulletin is available here.

Join us for an informal service of Morning Prayer at 8:00 am Christmas morning on Zoom.

If you would like to watch the Christmas Eve service with family and friends who can’t be with you in person, there are several programs that allow you to sync up a YouTube video and watch it together.

This article,, suggests several programs you can use to synchronize your viewing with others, and provides some troubleshooting hints to help you get going.

We do not endorse, recommend or in any way provide support for these apps.
