Outreach

 
"Gathered for Worship"
We reach out to the needy through our involvement in and support of community projects. We have a close association with the Côte des Neiges Council of Churches. We contribute to their summer day camp program, and members of our congregation regularly volunteer at the Council's second-hand store. We provide funding for programs such as the assistance for struggling families, teens and the physically and intellectually challenged offered by St. Columba House in Pointe St. Charles; housing and advocacy for newly arrived refugees, an inner city summer day camp and work integration for street youth provided by the Montreal City Mission in Plateau Mont Royal; a food bank and meal program at MultiCaf in Côte des Neiges; and, secondary education and parenting programs for teen moms at Elizabeth House in Notre Dame de Grace. We have two special annual appeals, one to fund food baskets at Christmas and the other in spring to help underprivileged children go to summer camp.

We commit a portion of our income to the Mission and Service Fund which is supported by donations from every congregation in the United Church. This fund is distributed by the church's national office to charitable work around the world.
