Advent and Christmas season are some of the most joyous times in our wider community and at The Briarcliff Congregational Church.
At our church, we celebrate the weeks leading up to Christ’s birth with special events, as well as added elements during our regular Sunday worship including lighting of the Advent wreath candles, representing hope, love, joy, and peace. We prepare the manger week by week, our children and youth sing Christmas carols, and we delight in many more joyous surprises!
Take a moment from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to worship with us during the Advent season.

Giving Tree & Christmas sponsorships

When: Sunday, December 1 – December 15
Where: Parish Hall (Beebe Hall), across the street from the Sanctuary

A long-standing tradition at The Briarcliff Congregational Church as a way to give back to the community during the holiday season. Ornament tags are hung on the tree suggesting particular gifts for families in need. Church members are encouraged to choose ornaments, purchase the specified gift, and return it to church. Each year, gifts are donated to specific organizations. In the past, Briarcliff Congregational Church recipients have included families at For All Seasons, Hope’s Door, Ossining Food Pantry, IFCA, and Ossining Children’s Center.
