A Christmas Concert titled “From Solstice Into Light” will be presented on Saturday December 21 at 7:00 pm at the Christian Union Church (27 Shore Road, Route 6A) in North Truro. The concert will feature John Thomas (organ and piano), Tor Hansen (cello), Wendy Willard (recorder), Liz Haskell (violin), and the Christian Union Church Choir. A free will donation (suggested $15 more or less) will be taken. Fifty percent of the proceeds will benefit the Christian Union Church.
The Christian Union Society was established in 1707 as a “house for the Publik Worshop of God” in order to meet the two-year prerequisite for establishing the town of Truro, which was incorporated in 1709. The first church existed on the same site as the present building, which was built in 1840 by a “union” of Congregationalists and Methodists. The chandelier in the sanctuary is the original, today lit by electricity rather than whale oil.
