Who is invited?
Familienetværket er et tilbud særligt til familier med udfordringer, hvor forældre og børn kan komme og få et frirum fra en presset hverdag. Familienetværket drives af frivillige og er et tilbud til familier, hvor for eksempel arbejdsløshed, sygdom, dødsfald, misbrugsproblemer eller skilsmisse har gjort kraftigt indhug i de voksnes personlige ressourcer.
Family Network is a great place to meet new people, make friends, and gain a new perspective on life. It's a way to combat loneliness and isolation by meeting and talking with people who are in similar situations.
Many families have found the strength to change their circumstances through participating in Family Network, whether that involves starting a new line of study, finding a job, overcoming addiction, resolving a conflict, getting out of debt, etc.
It is Kirkecentret Vejle's mission to reach out to families in need within Vejle municipality. We work together with Blue Cross and Rema 1000 in Vinding in this effort. Together, we provide "Christmas boxes" filled with all the ingredients for traditional Danish Christmas Eve and Christmas day meals. In addition, we partner with Rosborg Gymnasium to provide a gift for each child in these families.
When families come to pick up their boxes, we turn it into a full/blown party complete with food, music, and fellowship.
Families are selected to take part in the program via the Vejle Municipality or Blue Cross.
In 2020, we provided Christmas boxes for nearly 100 families.
Each year, the church hosts a Christmas market at the end of November to ring in the holiday season. Not only is it a great way to shop sustainably and affordably, but 100% of the proceeds go towards funding our Christmas "julehjælp" project.
