Aged Care Church Services. Where Church comes to you.
For many residents in aged care, some of their previous activities stop once they move in. Not church services.
In many aged and specialised care venues around Ballarat, the Chaplaincy ministry provides or supports in-person aged care church services. Once a month, volunteers from Ballarat's local Uniting Church congregations lead a short church service for residents. These often involve familiar Bible readings, familiar hymns, familiar words and most importantly, familiar faces.
Across a regular month, Chaplaincy helps provide in-person church services to:
Calvary Care - Kirralee
Calvary Care - Kelaston
James Thomas Court
W.B. Messer Hostel
Jack Lonsdale Lodge
The Steele Haughton Unit
Estia (Mt. Clear)
If you know a resident in any of these venues, feel free to let them know about church services. If you'd like to help in leading a church service, contact Andrew.
BRHC acknowledges the contribution of the former congregation of Pleasant Street Uniting Church in the creation of this website. BRHC operates on primarily on Waddawarrung Country. We pay our respects to their Elders - past, present and emerging.
