Winter Solstice 2020 at Westwood

Website Winter Solstice Poster 2020


The Winter Solstice has been celebrated by peoples of many nations and faiths for centuries.

Westwood has celebrated the Solstice in many ways for over 30 years. Dec. 21, 2020, we celebrated on Zoom.

Please Support Our Solstice 2020 Local Charity

An important part of the Westwood Winter Solstice tradition has been to support a local charity chosen by our Social Justice group.  We try to support groups who are serving the community and may not be supported by the large scale funding drives or major government grants.

This year we are supporting Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre.

100% of the donations made at a Westwood Winter Solstice service goes to the charity.

Note: Some of the online methods of payment may include a small service charge.  Westwood does not provide these services or benefit from these charges.
