It’s that time again – we are in preparation.
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.
This year we are playing with The Words of Advent.
Firstly, we invite you to check out this year’s Advent reflections will be posted on the Kippax faith website https://kippaxfaith.wordpress.com/
You will be receiving a “Word of the Day” and are invited to respond to the Words of Advent by taking photos or videos of where you see these Words Made Flesh. I wonder where you notice these words in your life…I wonder what they mean to you…I wonder why they are important…
In our services, we will be exploring our Word for week 1: HOPE!
November 29, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Also this Sunday, is the People’s Climate March – meet on lawns at Parliament House at 12 noon. You are invited to wear purple
Wednesday December 9, 8pm Blue Christmas is a special time of peace and reflection for people approaching this Christmas in grief or without a loved one.
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 as soon as possible.
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 email@example.com 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,
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.
Grace and peace
Gordon and Hannah
