The Outreach Committee at St. Andrew’s continues to be active, choosing a different ministry each month to focus on regarding service, prayer and donations. The ministries that we have been supporting are: Sage House, West Broadway Community ministry, Siloam Mission, Safe Passage, Rainbow Ministry, Agape Table, The Prayer Shawl Ministry and St. Matthew’s Maryland. The community ministries of the United Church of Canada continue to be promoted through the Christmas Catalogue, through Outreach-givings from the church and through Minute for Mission.
Two other important aspects of St. Andrew’s Outreach Program are: the Meals on Wheels Program and the Right to Housing Coalition. The latter is a coalition working in Winnipeg that seeks to advocate for appropriate, affordable housing for those in need.
Each September, St. Andrew’s supports the Hustle for Hunger event with proceeds going to Agape Table. St. Andrew’s supports this event through those who come out to walk & make a pledge and very importantly through the Fellowship and Pastoral Care Committee who prepare a breakfast & help with the planning.
On an annual basis donations are made to: Winnipeg Harvest, Siloam Mission, 1-Hope Winnipeg and Agape Table. This is the Outreach Program in a nutshell. Together, we make a difference.
