While for most people Christmas means a joyful time with family and friends, for others, Christmas can be the saddest time of the year.

“We invite anyone who would like to take the opportunity for a personal reflection time, to attend the comfort service at the Church”

For those who are separated from loved ones through death, illness, relationship breakdown or distance, the noise and excitement of Christmas celebrations can emphasise feelings of loneliness, loss and grief.

Recognising this, the Kingscote Uniting Church is offering a ‘Comfort at Christmas’ reflection time and service on Wednesday December 13.

The Church will be open from 4.30–5.30pm for people looking for a quiet place to sit and remember loved ones and have a time of reflection with the opportunity for prayer.

People can stay for as short or as long a time as they wish.

At 5.30pm there will be a half hour worship service.

The emphasis will be on recognising the issues many people face and the comfort and hope the Christmas message offers.

Following the service, refreshments will be available in the Church hall.

“We invite anyone who would like to take the opportunity for a personal reflection time or attend the comfort service at the Uniting Church to do so, whatever their faith background,” said Louise Davis, Pastor of Kangaroo Island Uniting Church.

The Kingscote Uniting Church is on the corner of Murray and Franklin Street.
