On Christmas Eve at 4pm we have a time of stories for children, and for the young at heart
On Christmas Eve at 8pm, we will gather for Carols, in Dungowan St Hawker
On Christmas Eve at 11pm we have our very special creative service – Journey to Bethlehem
And on Christmas Day at 9am we hold our all-age celebration – Presence in the midst of absence
We hope you can join with us.
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. Continue reading

Week 3 – Joy in the midst of despair – may you feel a sense of transforming joy
When all is empty and all semblance of life is gone, God is not yet finished. The story is not yet complete. There is still space for joy. We celebrate the One who has come, is coming and will come again.
I hope you have been finding the Advent responses on our website each week – and finding them helpful
This week is the 3rd week of Advent and we are continuing in our season of contrasts. This week’s theme is “Joy in the midst of Despair”
It has been, as always, an absolute privilege to be part of the Kippax Christmas Appeal, and see some of the ways that joy has been brought into people’s lives over the past few days. Thank you for everyone’s involvement – no matter what form it has taken this year. Continue reading
Week 2 – Peace in the midst of conflict
May you feel the sense of unexpected peace
The prophet wrote
“Comfort, comfort my people. Speak tenderly to them
and let them know that they have served their term”.
Even while conflict continues around us, God offers a different way. God calls us to breathe in the holy breath of peace. Continue reading
As the season of Advent contrast continues, we are getting ready for what is to come.
Did you check out the Kippax website this week?
Advent reflections will be posted on the Kippax website www.kippax.org.au. Each of the reflections will have two contrasting responses. These reflections aim to give an opportunity for response no matter where you are in life at this time of year. This week’s reflections reflect on hope in hopelessness.
How are you feeling as we approach Christmas? Continue reading

Advent 2014 – A Season of Contrasts
Advent is a time of preparation, of getting ready, of counting down to Christmas! It can be exciting and life giving, or overwhelming and distressing.
Each of the reflections will have 2 suggestions for response that are pastoral (internally focussed reflections) or missional (outwardly focussed actions). These Advent reflections aim to give an opportunity for response no matter where you are in life at this time of year.
As you journey through Advent, may you experience a sense of defiant Hope, unexpected Peace, transforming Joy, and the warmth of Love that Christ brings. Continue reading
