Meeting House
Christmas Candle Light Service
at 7:30 pm

Starksboro Village Meeting House - Lighting of the Chandelier by Kevin Hanson, the grandson of Ruth Carpenter Hanson who spearheaded a group of Starksboro residents to acquire the Meeting House and preserve it for future generations in 1957.

A tradition since the 1960's, the service is held in a sanctuary where electric lights are a secondary way to light the space. The primary light source is a kerosene lamp chandelier.

The non-denominational service, led by the Rev. John Burbank will be a program of lessons and carols, also featuring other special music. The service is centered around the Christmas Story and the popular candle lighting ceremony in a sanctuary where little has changed from when it was last used as an active Church in the early 1900's, offering a nostalgic glimpse into the past.
