It has always been and always will be, about sharing God's love. We're passionate about responding to the Gospel; loving and serving where love and service is needed - right in our backyard. We care deeply about the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbor; our work is never done.
We are fully engaged; we connect with, pray with, laugh with, cry with, and uplift the lives of our neighbor - even if just for a few moments. Sure it starts with the promise of a lovingly prepared meal, but our work goes far beyond that. It's really God's grace alive. We offer:
Weekly Co-ed Sharing Circles, Weekly Women’s Sharing Circles, and Bi-Monthly Men’s Sharing Circles
Weekly Men’s Group
Children’s colouring and reading tables
Every Church is part of a community, and we take our responsibility to be good neighbours seriously. We invite all to be part of our ministry. Together we can be a force for advancing God's kingdom - bringing together our churches and communities to contribute to their mission every day.
We are members of the Urban; it's not just another volunteer opportunity or a hand-out, it's our faith in action. Together we embrace diversity and cultivate our common sense of purpose in order to create a place where each of us can become the individuals God intends for us to be. We always treat each other with respect and dignity.
OUR MEETING PLACE
We feel a sense of belonging and safety, our meeting place has become a haven, a break from the worries outside, a place where you can meet with friends. It's about living beyond ourself and our circumstance together - always full of humanity and open to God's transforming power.
We are often lost in moments at The Urban. Not lost as in losing our place, rather being so in the moment, without worry of the past or future, that we are demonstrably interested in what we do as the people we work with. This is true connection.
"I am the Lord who created you; from the time you were born, I have helped you. Do not be afraid; you are my servant, my chosen people whom I love." - Isaiah 44:2 (TEV)
