Make Yourself at Home this Christmas

We’re looking forward to celebrating Christmas Eve with you at our Northville campus! If you are new to Ward Church, we are so happy to welcome you to our church. We want to make you feel at home and so, if there are any needs you have that we can accommodate, please let us know in advance by filling out our contact us form. We can’t wait to celebrate the birth of Jesus with you and your family and friends.


Childcare is only offered for infants through age 4 in our Nursery during our December 24 services.

If you are new to WardKids: No pre-registration is required, however if this is your first time participating with any our WardKids programs at Ward Church, you will need to fill out a form when you drop off your child(ren). So, we recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the service starts.

If you are not new to WardKids: Please print off your pick-up slips as you normally would on any other Sunday at the kiosks.

Please park in Lot 3 and enter at Entry 3. Immediately turn to your right to access the Nursery wing.

Map of Ward Church

Our Sanctuary is situated near our Entry 6, while our WardKids area is nearest our Entry 2. Use this map to help navigate around our campus. Also, please feel free to locate any of our volunteers wearing “Need help? Ask me!” badges.

What to wear?

Come dressed comfortably. Around Christmastime, you may see more suits and dresses than a Sunday at a different time of year. But still, some wear jeans and tennis shoes. We are more concerned that you come as you are rather than if you look your “Sunday Best.”

Guests with Mobility Challenges

Ward Church barrier-free facility, compliant with state and local codes for accessibility. We provide shuttle services at Entry 5 for those who need assistance getting to our Sanctuary. Just pull up into a parking space directly outside of Entry 5 and a shuttle will be standing by. We will pull around and help you on to the shuttle. When leaving, stand outside the Sanctuary and a shuttle service will be by to help pick you up and take you directly to your vehicle. See a map of the building and property.

Where to Park and Enter

Entries 4, 5 and 6 are closest to the Sanctuary, where worship services will be held. So please park in one of the corresponding lots (Lots 4, 5 and 6). These lots face both Six Mile Road and Cross Road. For those needing to drop children off at our nursery, please park in Lot 1 (and enter Entry 1, and turn to your left).

What will the service be like?

Worship will include live music and teaching. You may hear familiar Christmas hymns mixed with newer worship songs expressed through congregational singing, piano, guitar and vocalists. Many different faith traditions enjoy Ward’s services as a time of unity and inspiration.
