Breakfast Club (Queen Elizabeth Elementary School)
In this program we partner with the staff at Queen Elizabeth and volunteers from the neighbourhood to provide a nutritious breakfast to students on a daily basis.
Through this program we visit under-resourced neighbourhoods once a month to make an impact. We hand out free supplies and make practical services available to the community in order to provide support.
TENT CITY OUTREACH
Through this program we visit the homeless who communally live together in what the media has called “Tent City” once a month. We bring clothing, resources and food to give them along with letting them know that we love them and God loves them.
On the first Thursday of the month from 9am-12pm we have free Coffee and treats available to anyone in the community as well as a variety of free (new and used) children’s clothing that people can pick from.
LOVE SOUTHDALE EVENTS
Throughout the year we do intentional events to try to bless and love the Southdale community directly around our church. Here are a few:
Easter Egg Hunt
Canada Day Block Party
Outdoor Family Summer Movie Nights
October BBQ & Candy Handout
Light Up Southdale Christmas Party
KW PREGNANCY CENTRe
We partner with the centre through the month of May in their “Baby Bottle” initiative to raise money for the work they do for mom’s. We also have a once a “Undie Sunday” every February where we collect diaper donations that are then given to the pregnancy centre to be distributed to mom’s and families in need.
BACK TO SCHOOL SUNDAY
Every year, the last Sunday of August is “Back2School” Sunday where we collect school supply donations that then gets passed along to the administration at Queen Elizabeth Elementary school, so they can put free school supplies into the hands of kid’s who can’t afford them.
MISSION TRIPS TO NORTHERN ONTARIO
Once a year, we try to send a team to a location in northern Ontario for a short term missions project to help a community in need.
We currently support 6 individuals and families who have ministries around the world from Africa to Thailand to Germany! We have partnered with them in prayer and in funding. We also strive to send teams on a short term basis to join with our missionaries and support their ministries.
