Christmas in Port Stephens at The Rock Church



7pm Christmas Eve

Make Christmas Eve your new family tradition with sing-a-long Christmas Carols and a journey through the Christmas story. Due to COVID, our service will not be as spectacular and will not include a candlelight experience but it will still be perfect for you and the whole family!

Fantastic Music

Christmas Carols

The Christmas Story

Enjoyable for the whole family!

Will the service be different to other years? Unfortunately, YES

Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions preventing our preparations, we will not be having a full musical production with 10 carols and candlelight like in other years. However, we will still have singalong carols and we will still hear the Christmas story.

How long will the service go for?

Our Christmas Eve service duration is about an hour. Don’t worry, we won’t be standing for the entire service!

Is there a children’s program?

Our regular Rock Kids program will not be running during our Christmas Eve service.

Will there be a Candlelit experience?

Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions we are unable to have a candlelight experience.

When should I arrive?

Our Christmas Eve service starts at 7pm, but we invite you to arrive a few minutes early to get a seat and meet some of our people!

What do I wear?

Our dress code is black tie optional. Just kidding.

We care more about you than what you’re wearing. Feel free to wear whatever you’re comfortable wearing, whether that’s a suit or shorts. The only thing that may be questionable would be socks and thongs… No one wears socks and thongs.

Where should I park?

Our front carpark is the best place to park. If the carpark is full there is parking behind the church in the school carpark.



Yes, there are still some restrictions but there’s something amazing about having church together in person that we would love for you to experience! Our Sunday service is designed with you in mind. We want to make it easy for you to respond to Jesus and to find a place to belong so our service is designed with this in mind. We’d love to see you on Sunday and it’s as scanning a QR code on your way in!

At The Rock Church, we believe the church isn’t a building – it’s people. We know that God created us to find life together in circles. Facebook is a great place to meet people and learn more about God.

We believe in starting right where you are. You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to have all the right answers. You just need an internet connection!
