Fulfilling Christ's call to love God, live in community, and serve our neighbor

Candle Tea begins Thursday Dec. 3

Considered by many area residents and visitors the opening event of the Advent and Christmas seasons, Candle Tea will be held Thursday-Saturday, Dec. 3-5 and Dec. 10-12. The Women’s Fellowship of Home Moravian Church organizes and hosts Candle Tea to share with our guests the Moravian traditions and customs of the season.

These include singing carols accompanied by the 1798 Tannenberg organ, enjoying rich lovefeast coffee and Moravian sugarcake, watching as beeswax candles are made by hand, and viewing the Candle Tea putz

Candle Tea is held in the Single Brothers House on Salem Square in historic Old Salem. Costumed volunteers welcome you and guide you through the Candle Tea. Get more Candle Tea information and see the daily schedules.

Home Moravian Church invites you to join with us for worship, fellowship, outreach, educational activities and any of our ministries. Established in 1771, our church is located in Winston-Salem, N.C., in the historic district of Old Salem, a restored 1766 Moravian settlement. 

Sunday morning worship begins at 10 a.m. The service is broadcast live on the internet, and on WSJS AM 600, or wsjs.com. A coffee fellowship immediately follows the service. Sunday school begins at 11:15 and concludes by noon.
