Advent is a time when we prepare Christmas presents, Christmas decorations, decorate our homes and try to create a cozy atmosphere during one of the dark months of the year. At Kirken i Kulturcenteret it means that we embark on a very special tradition: On the first three Sundays of Advent, we value organizations and passionate individuals who make a difference for people around them. Hence the name Appreciation.
It is said that it is more blessed to give than to receive. That is exactly what we as a church experience when we give appreciation and concrete support to the invited fire souls and organizations. We are enriched with human tales; stories about what a difference passion and care can make; a gratitude for becoming a small part of something much bigger, and we observe that our appreciation provides a good and much needed encouragement to the people and projects we support.
Three great Sundays await us, with lots of heartbeat and inspirational features, and services filled with Christmas cheer and Christmas carols:
Sunday, December 1: Appreciation of Skt. Lucas Foundation
Sunday, December 8: Appreciation of Be free
Sunday, December 15: Appreciation of Teen Challange
On these Sundays, we will of course give you the right amount of “Christmas hygge” and Christmas joy. And there’s no Advent Sunday in Kirken i Kulturcenteret without a surprise!
Together we’ll make Copenhagen a better city and appreciate the people around us who live in it!
