Trinity United Church of Christ, 32 W. Market St., will host CandleChant, 8 p.m. Friday.

Sponsored by the church's Music Outreach Ministry, the event is the ancient ritual of singing prayers by candlelight at the close of day.

The choir of York's historic Trinity UCC, directed by Timothy Smith, will sing psalms, hymns and chant following the beloved tradition, a meditation of simplicity and serenity. Built in 1865, the carvings in the church will glow with the light of 300 candles. The service will begin with the ringing of bells and conclude at 8:30 p.m.
