Outreach

We reach out to help people in our local community in a variety of ways. With our Gift of Giving program at Christmas we collect and distribute clothing, toys and food to several local families.

In 2006 the Wesley congregation began to support the work of a local elementary teacher, Amy McLaren, who with her husband Stu embarked on a Christian mission to deliver educational supplies to a school in El Salvador. Amy and Stu continued this ministry and have established World Teacher Aid as a charitiable organization to raise funds to support educational endeavours in Africa and South America.

Both Wesley and Garnet are strong supporters of the Mission and Service Fund of the United Church of Canada, and the various programs supported by the M&S Fund in Canada and around the world.

Our minister conducts services and visitation at the local retirement homes, and our choir entertains seniors groups as well.
