Our Friendship Centre is ALL about connecting and serving our community and neighbourhood around us.
Our Desire is that we would bring Gods love, light and life to our community. Building relationship is essential in this for us because we want our friends to know its not just about doing a program - but being a friend who cares.
We have 3 major ways that we connect with our Neighbourhood BUT we're always looking for other ways of expressing Gods love to them.
Everyone loves FRESH BREAD - Every Tuesday evening we have an opportunity to pick up the most delicous, freshly baked bread to be distributed through our Free Store Wednesday Mornings.
Wednesday Mornings is one of the major opportunities we have to love on and serve our neighbourhood through our FREE STORE. This is when the community can come and pick-up good quality used clothing and household items and a couple of fresh loaves of bread - Not to mention being able to just sit - enjoy a cup of coffee, a danish or two and just hang out.
Like it works in other relationships - you often invite your friends over to share a meal. We do this with our neighbourhood with our once a month COMMUNITY MEAL. We see this as a great way to continue to build relationship with our neighbours and to serve a delicous and nutritous meal for up to 300 people in our community - many of which really struggle on a daily basis.
