Christmas at Carey 2019

Celebrating Christmas Together

There are so many reasons to celebrate at this time of the year.
It is also true that for some, Christmas can be a particularly hard time of the year.
We would love for you and your family to be part of the Carey Community celebrations wherever you find yourself this year. We believe that as a community we are better together.


  • Christmas Hampers


    Carey Christmas Hampers

    Thanks so much for helping those in need this Christmas season! Your hamper will go to either a family who is finding life a challenge, a women’s refuge or someone who needs a bit of extra love this Christmas.

    Here are a few things to keep in mind as you shop for your hamper:

    • These are suggestions only, but this list will help us make sure each hamper has similar contents, and the receiver has their basic needs covered, but feel free to add other items.
    • There is no need to wrap your hamper – it will be repacked, as our team is required to check over the contents before distributing them.
    • Please ensure items are still before the use-by date; out of date items can’t be delivered.
    • Please DO NOT include chocolate products or cream biscuits – these don’t survive the heat.


    In addition, we have a Donation Basket in the Carey Centre Foyer. You are welcome to donate individual items from the hamper list.

    If you or someone you know are in need this Christmas season, please contact the Church Office on 9394 9155 or email

    • More information about the services


      We’ve got plenty of parking spaces, but we’ve also got a lot of people who will be attending our Christmas Services, so those spots fill up fast. We encourage you to arrive early to find your spot in time for the service commencement.


      We will celebrate together as families in an all combined service together.  We welcome all ages, the more the merrier!


      At Carey, everyone is welcome to come just as they are. Some people like to dress up and others dress very casually. We encourage you to come the way that you feel most comfortable.


      For those who would like to linger, stay a while and celebrate, are more than welcome to.  We’ll have a delicious Christmas themed supper/morning tea.

      You are welcome to fill out a connect card and bring it to the welcome lounge in the foyer and say hi. This helps us to stay in communication with you and let you know about all of the exciting things happening at Carey throughout the year. If you don’t wish to be contacted, you can simply indicate that on the card.

      Feel free to stop by the main foyer and hang out for a while, meet our Pastoral team or stop by the information table to learn more about Carey Church.


      If you have any questions about the Christmas Services or any of the other exciting things happening at Carey Church, please call the church offices at 9394 9155 or email
