Services & Events


It takes dedication and work to run a RAN Mission. We appreciate our chefs. (Assistant Lucy, Head Chef Tony and Apprentice Chef Brent).



Bailey and Jeremy Stam will be running the 2016 Victoria Marathon in support of Ruth and Naomi’s Mission  (RAN). Please consider supporting their run by donating to the Mission. This will enable RAN’s continued success in helping those in need of food, shelter and comfort.

Please visit our ONLINE DONATIONS page…



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 100 people meet every week.
