Annual General Meeting
Sunday 31 August at 12 noon (soup and rolls lunch served at 11.30am)
Each Sunday in August we are going to be focusing on the Church Council’s discernment of God’s ongoing call for us here at Kippax.
The AGM is a great time to hear and share the stories of the way that God is at work in this place. We can never share all the stories that occur – there are simply too many (John 21:25!) – but we want to try and share LOTS of stories.
The annual report can be viewed here.
Hard copies are now available
Also available is the discernment document that the Church Council has been working on for some time – where are we headed? Who are we called to be?. Kippax vision – Where the yeast of love will rise
It’s a time to celebrate where we have been over the past 12 months and where we are heading into the future.
It’s also a time to thank a number of people who have been involved in key leadership positions for several years and who are now taking a break from those positions.

If you are considering making a charitable donation, please consider Kippax. A donation to UnitingCare Kippax is tax deductible.
What does your donation support?
Through the many different programs and activities UnitingCare Kippax provides direct support for people who are struggling financially, families who are trying to build on their relationship skills, parents who are learning new ways of caring for their children, young people who are having difficulties in their schooling, people who have moved from other countries and are trying to establish a new life here in Canberra. Every year there are literally thousands of people whose lives are changed because of the work of UnitingCare Kippax – which is an expression of the concern of this congregation. We are involved in advocacy with the ACT Government about how to improve the community as a whole; we are involved with local businesses as they consider ways that they can be involved in this tranformation as well. We are working with the developers of the new West Belconnen housing project so that there will be a strong, related community from day one.
All this is only possible because of the generosity of members of our community – with their time and with their finances.

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.
