THEME: "Appreciation": The Lucas House, St. Lucas Foundation
Sunday the 1st of December
Services starts at 11.00
Every Sunday at 11:00am in the Main Hall. We have our main service in Danish and English.
The service consists of a sermon, prayer, and musical worship. Thai and Spanish translations are available via headsets and a mobile app.
We also want our church community to be more than just a worship service. Therefore, everyone is invited to stay and have lunch together in the church Community Café, or café Kant after the service is over. On certain Sundays, there will also be special events and activities.
This Sunday we would like to appreciate and honor The Lucas House, which is a part of the St. Lucas Foundation here in the Northern part of Copenhagen. In the Lucas House there is a hospice for children and youth. When children and youth get a life-threatening illness, the whole family is affected. At The Lucas House both the sick child, parents and siblings are offered relief and support. The Lucas House is unique as a hospice and receives children and young people from all over the country.
The Lukas House offers a palliative treatment for children and adolescents aged 0-18 + with life-threatening illness and their families. Hospitalization is offered throughout the course of the disease depending on the needs of the individual family. Admission to The Lucas House will, for most people, be in the process of illness, but may also be related to termination of life.
Nursing, care and soothing treatment are carried out in a multidisciplinary collaboration of doctors, nurses, physical therapist, psychologist, social worker and pastor. The Lucas House also has its own hospital clown, musician and volunteers.
The Lucas House is of vital importance to families with life-threatening sick children. Evaluation from the Knowledge Center for Rehabilitation and Palliation shows that:
• The staff at The Lucas House are good at relieving the hospitalized children both in emergency situations and during quiet periods.
• The Lucas House is a good supplement to the hospital for complicated, uncertain and potentially long illnesses.
• Families reestablish a family life that was otherwise chaotic and gain more profits in everyday life.
• Families are happy with the physical environment where they have the opportunity to be together and live a more ordinary family life.
