Join us at week's close to honour those who have served and sacrificed so that we may enjoy our lives of relative peace, comfort and freedom.

Each Sunday we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the men and women who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed.

As Christmas approaches, this week's service acknowledges the many Defence Force personnel who serve overseas and are separated from their families during this special time. We also remember all those who have served throughout history who have spent Christmas away from loved ones. The sacrifices you make allow us to celebrate in peace.
