Outreach

What We Offer

As " a body of Christian believers growing in active faith, striving to serve God and humankind through love, grace, and material sharing" (Mission Statement) our congregation participates in a vital outreach ministry.

All Saint's regularly contributes non-perishable goods to the food pantry at Chalmers Community Services Centre. Last year, we donated 2000 pounds of food. That's a ton!

Members from St. Paul's regularly participate in the ”Saturday Night Suppers Program ” at the Royal City Evangelical Church (formerly Chalmers United Church). Our congregation regularly make donations, look after the kitchen and serving line (at least 12 each meal), cook the food, and, clean up afterwards. We work on a rotational basis with other congregations and groups throughout Guelph. On a typical Saturday night meal, some 160 meals may be served.

We also publish a monthly newsletter (summer months excepted) called ”Connections. Christine Morrison is doing an excellent job as our current editor. Various members of our church, including our Pastor, and Church Council regularly contribute articles of both an interest and informative nature but also a faith based growth viewpoint. Connections is also archived and available on our Church Website.

Through our "Rides Program",  we attempt to connect persons needing a ride to church with church members willing to provide transportation. If you need a ride or you are willing to provide transportation, please contact the church office.

Ever since 2005, members of "Flying Blind" AA Group have been meeting in our Church. As many as 25 persons regularly attend weekly meetings.

Back in 1988, the ”Journey Together" Al-Anon Chapter was founded at HOMEWOOD. These days, as many as 12-15 members attend weekly Thursday meetings in our Church. 

TOPS stands for ”Take Off Pounds Sensibly". Men, women, and teenagers are welcomed at this non-profit support group, and 10-15 members regularly attend Tuesday evening meetings.

 

Special thanks to Church Members who regularly participate in and support our Outreach Ministry.
