Outreach to the community is identified in our mission statement as an important part of our focus as a community. We seek to equip our members to live out their lives as the hands and feet of Jesus in the places where they live.
We feel blessed to support with time, talent and treasure a number of outreach ministries in a variety of ways.
- Raises funds each month for Port Hardy and Vancouver Island groups and organizations. These donations are of loose change and/or beverage bottles from the church and the wider community.
- Open to the community these dinners raise funds for either general church use or for other groups and organizations identified by the congregation as in need of support.
To support the wider mission work of the United Church of Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada the congregation also donates money to the Mission and Service (M&S) Fund and the Primate's World Relief and Development (PWRDF) Fund.
