This is, literally, the longest night of the year.
There are more hours of darkness than there are of light. It’s something that happens every year.
We use the time to remember that there are many of us who struggle through the holidays. Perhaps you’ve lost a loved one recently. Maybe you’re unable to be with your family. Whatever your reason, if the holidays are a tough time, even though everyone says it’s so wonderful, we hope you’ll make plans to attend our Service of the Longest Night.
