Christmas Eve Service Information

Service Times

December 24, 2016 at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.


What to Expect

Portico is hosting our Christmas Eve Services with Evergreen Ministries this year.  The services will last an hour and can be enjoyed by all ages, including children.  The worship team from Evergreen Ministries will join the worship team at Portico to lead us in some Christmas Carols.  We also light candles to celebrate the saving 'light coming in to the world' (John 12:46) through our savior Jesus Christ.

Portico Kids

Portico Kids will not be open for our candlelit Christmas Eve evening services. However, there will be a few spaces open and available for parents to use. Parents with little ones who need space to play and move around will be able to use the the Family Room and the Loft above the Kitchen. The Mother's Room will be open for nursing moms. All three spaces will have monitors showing the services.


Many people travel at Christmas and may not be able to attend a Christmas Eve service. We've been blessed with the technology to be able to stream our services online. Tune in at live.porticocville.org at 4PM or 6PM or watch from your Portico Church App.


Portico Church's building is located at 981 2nd St SE, Charlottesville, VA 22902. Our church is situated in the Ix Complex, about a mile from UVA, with easy access from I64 and we have plenty of onsite parking.
