Theme: Creating a light in the darkness


'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but have the light of life' (John 8:12)


This year, the Synod theme for Christmas is about creating a light in the darkness. For many of us, this year has been a year of darkness and despair, with COVID-19 restrictions and ongoing uncertainty. The hopeful light of Christ shines on us all and continues to guide our path. Our challenge is to focus on the light that gives us hope and a purpose and to see the effect it has on the darkness. As St Francis of Assisi said: 'All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle'.

Uniting Church SA Christmas Services & Events

View a list of the Uniting Church SA Christmas 2021 worship times and services

For all other Christmas events, please visit our upcoming events list.

Some of our congregations are hosting 'Feeling Blue' services. We understand that for some people, Christmas can be a challenging time. If you'd like to observe the season in a quieter way, then one of these services may be suitable for you.

You can also contact your local Uniting Church about their Christmas service plans.



Christmas Postcards and Posters

The Uniting Church SA Christmas campaign helps our congregations and faith communities to communicate service and event details, to share in the Christmas story, and to raise awareness of the Uniting Church in the wider community.

Postcard design

Postcards are an effective way to inform congregations and your wider local communities about your Christmas service times. This year's postcard is adorned by beautiful artwork from Margie Goodluck on the front and the words 'Light of the world' flowing across a stained-glass backdrop.. The back of the postcard provides space for your custom greeting, Christmas service details and dates, and the Bible text from John 8:12.



Poster design

The Christmas poster shares similar design features to the postcards and and includes the words 'Light of the World'. It also provides space to write service details and dates.
