Let’s Give Everyone a Christmas 2014
Dr Sue Packer AM
Patron: Let’s Give Everyone a Christmas 2014
Christmas is a time of celebration. Many of us spend it with family or friends, enjoying a bit of an ‘end of year’ break of some sort or another. Some of us do not.
Our appeal “Let’s Give everyone a Christmas” is on the way again. We expect to be supporting more than 2000 people this Christmas. We provide food, toys for young children, and movie ticket packs for teenagers. Our target is to collect $50,000 in time for Christmas this year. That is an enormous task, and one which can only be achieved with the generosity of the Canberra community. Thank you.
I’m proud to be patron of this appeal because it’s part of giving everyone a fair go – sharing what we have so that we can all celebrate the good things in life. There are many ways you can contribute. Every donation – every bit of support – makes a difference for a person whose life is difficult at the moment.
- Financial donations can be made by direct bank transfer: click here to find out more. Gifts of $2 and over are tax deductible.
- New gifts can be left at our building, or at a number of other locations. Click here to see the list. We always receive generous donations of small gifts and soft toys and would love to add more brightly coloured and educational toys for children aged 0 – 12 to the options.
- Donations of non-perishable food can be brought to the Kippax Uniting Community Centre in Holt
- Volunteering your time – especially helping at the time we are distributing the Christmas assistance, from 10 – 19 December – is not only helpful, but can be very rewarding. Email Stuart Anderson email@example.com if you are interested in this.
Thank you again for supporting this appeal. If you have any questions please call 6254 1733. For more details on how to help, click here.
If you need help this Christmas, hamper bookings open on Monday 1st December at 9.00am. Call 6254 1733.
It is important that people book into and attend appointments so that we are able to provide them with the best possible service this Christmas, and so that others do not miss out.
Our Service Times
An opportunity to meet God in joyful, reflective worship. It includes times of meditation, responsive participation, traditional hymns and choruses. Communion is usually on the 2nd Sunday of the month.
A short, all-age, fun service that often includes craft and other activities, conversation, food and music. The first Sunday of the month is even higher energy than usual! Communion is usually on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
A contemporary service with a focus on opportunities to deepen faith in response to God’s grace and Christ’s message. Communion is usually on the 4th Sunday of the month.
Grab a coffee and relax in the foyer for a chat or take your cuppa through to the auditorium for the 10.30am service.
Monthly Monday service
11am on the third Monday of every month (except January). A traditional service which includes communion, particularly for people who can’t make it on Sundays or who have mobility issues. After the service, there is a lunch from around 12noon.
Monthly Sunday Lunch
On the first Sunday of the month from 11.45am we have a community lunch, often a BBQ outdoors in fine weather or soup and rolls indoors during winter. These are great times together, relaxing over a meal.
