Opportunities to Share Our Blessings
beyond Our Communities of Faith

The Church of St Paul provides a way to regularly support the Barriere Food Bank.  Donations can be brought to the church and placed in the basket in the foyer.

Beginning on Pentecost Sunday, May 19th, and lasting for the first month of the Season of Pentecost, Trinity Shared Ministry is collecting toiletries and water bottles to donate to Emerald House in Kamloops.

All three of our denominations have funds to support development and relief in both Canada and internationally.  They work with partners throughout the world to determine the best way to provide support.  Both our congregations support these funds.

The following links provide information about the funds and how they can be supported.  When any of them have an emergency response appeal, that information is shared in a post on this website.

Canadian Anglicans respond to national and international emergencies, refugees, development, and justice issues through The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF).  PWRDF supports projects to improve the well being of community members and break the cycle of poverty with a focus on health, empowering women and girls, food security and climate change, and Indigenous programmes.  PWRDF also responds to natural disasters and conflicts with humanitarian relief.

Congregations and members of Evangelical Lutheran Church In Canada serve the world’s poor and disenfranchised through Canadian Lutheran World Relief.  Its programmes respond to needs of community development, refugee resettlement, emergency relief, and humanitarian aid shipments.
