It’s that time again – we are counting down to Christmas. During this advent season we are getting ready for what is to come.

How are you preparing? At Kippax, we have a few ways to respond to the advent season.

Firstly, we invite you to check out this year’s Advent reflections will be posted on the Kippax website www.kippax.org.au. Each of the reflections will have two suggestions for response. These reflections aim to give an opportunity for response no matter where you are in life at this time of year.

Sunday November 30, 3.30pm-5pm is the Kippax Family Advent Workshop – children and their families (grandparents too!) are invited to share in the Hope, Peace, Joy and Love of Christmas. Families will explore the meaning of Christmas through music, storytime and craft. A barbecue dinner will follow.If you haven’t already, please rsvp to hannah@kippax.org.au

Wednesday December 10, 8pm Blue Christmas is a special time of peace and reflection for people approaching this Christmas in grief or without a loved one.

Sunday December 14, A Very Kippax Christmas. Come dressed up as something, preferably from the Christmas Story! Scripts will be available on Sunday so you can prepare. It promises to be a great time together.

Christmas Hampers are due back this Sunday. These hampers will assist more than 2000 people. We’re looking to buy extra hampers this year to ensure that all families in Canberra have the support that they need. Can you please return your hampers this weekend. Financial donations can also be made through our website – www.kippax.org.au/donate-or-volunteer or in person. Volunteers are still needed to help distribute the hampers. Email stuart@kippax.org.au or see the volunteer roster on the glass doors at the entrance to the Auditorium. Spread the word – word of mouth, facebook, twitter, however else you can. #GiveaChristmas, #givingbox2014. Thank you once again for your generosity with this appeal.

See you all this weekend as we begin the advent season and light the candle of Hope.
