Agape (Unconditional love)

This group meets on the first Thursday of the month (except July and August). Food vouchers and transit tickets are distributed to those in need.

In the words of an Agape member

A little bit of heaven came my way today,

A kindly smile from a friendly stranger

Welcomed me to stay.


Come join us at the table,

We'll soon be having tea,

A Cookie, too, sounds good to me,

Well, maybe we'll have two or three

Prayer Shawl Ministry

This a group of women that meet every second Wednesday afternoon from 2:00-3:30pm to knit the shawls. Anyone can join. It takes on average 20 hours to knit a shawl and they are given as gifts to anyone needing comfort (in hospital, illness, bereavement, moving, new job, new school etc) or celebration (wedding, baptism, graduation). Once the shawl is completed the group gathers to say a blessing over the shawl. This is the church's way of reaching out in love to those in need.
