St Philip's Aged Care Ministry

Eucharist at Canberra Aged Care (Kankinya)

St Philip's offers a weekly communion service at Canberra Aged Care, 48 Archibald Street Lyneham, 10.00am each Saturday.

Canberra Aged Care specialises in the care of people with dementia. Simple, respectful and prayerful Christian worship, friendship and ministry touches people in spirit even when the thinking isn't working too well.


Kankinya means 'love and kindness'; the Kankinya Aged Care Facility cares for people with dementia using a restraint-free environment and humane attitude towards behavioural management. There are many forms of dementia, which usually occur in older people but can happen at any age. The progressive decline in a person's functioning may include loss of memory, intellect, rationality, social skills and understandable emotional response.
