1820 HOUSE is our Sunday 6 pm chapel service held at the Mission.
The goal is to create a comfortable place where relationships can be formed and hopefully where people will feel comfortable inviting those without a home church back to theirs. For those who will never attend a church service gives them an opportunity to connect with the Church as a whole and most importantly with God. Currently around 50 meet every week.

PRAYER… at the Mission we believe in offering to pray for people. Kevin (pictured) is our Night Supervisor. He shared a recent health issue. Volunteers that evening gathered and prayed. “I was SO touched that they would care about me like that,” he said.

In BC 20.4% of children live in poverty. One therapist stated “If mom comes home and has a breakdown when she opens a bill, ‘I don’t know know how we’re going to pay this month’s rent!’ this increases the child’s anxiety.”  A McMaster University study revealed that children and youth who live in poverty are at three times higher risk of developing a mental health problem with anxiety being high on the list.
Practical help, like clothing donations and meals improve self esteem and reduces stress for the families. Peter Biggs – Director of Community Services.
