Wellesley has ten houses of worship that observe Christmas. Some celebrate with all the formality you might expect from a church with Puritan roots, some with a casual flair, and one takes their services on the road and into a Natick barn. All the services and masses are joyful, and all are welcome. Merry Christmas, Wellesley.

Note: Christmas observance is Sunday, December 23 at the Natick Organic Community Farm barn, 117 Eliot St., Natick
Metro West Baptist Church holds a unique Christmas service — they celebrate the birth of Jesus where it all began, in a humble barn. Worshippers sit on bales of hay and read the Christmas story, sing carols and enjoy hot cocoa as they imagine just a tiny bit of what it might have been like 2000 years ago.
Sunday, December 23, 10am, at the Natick Organic Community Farm.
