2021 Watchnight Service and New Year’s Holy Communion

at Fairview Moravian Church

December 31, 2020, and January 1, 2021

11:15 p.m. – 12:15 a.m.

     On New Year’s Eve, the Salem Congregation Watchnight Service moves to Fairview Moravian (6550 Silas Creek Parkway) with worship beginning at 11:15 p.m. preceded by a 20 minute band prelude.  Rev. Tony Hayworth, will bring the Watchnight message. This year the New Year will be entered with a celebration of Holy Communion, replacing the customary Lovefeast shared in previous years. The service will be both live and available through their YouTube channel, the link can be found at

Once again the band will interrupt the sermon at midnight to announce the New Year with the playing of “Now Thank We All Our God.”  This interruption is symbolic of the unexpected way the kingdom of God will break into our lives.  All brass and wind musicians are invited to play.

Our thanks to the Fairview Moravian Congregation for hosting this year.
