Outreach

Reaching out to others in faith can mean all sorts of things.  The ministry of Jesus was a lifetime of reaching out to people with the good news of God’s love for them.  It was a love expressed in the words he shared, in acts of healing, feeding the hungry, and in his own self-giving on the cross.  Jesus knew that poverty had many different manifestations that were not only material, but spiritual in nature.  The primary work of Christian outreach is an expression of love for those around us rooted in unconditional love with the purpose of bringing people together in community. Outreach is something we can do as individuals or collectively as people of faith.

The congregation of St. Stephen’s on-the-Hill encourages outreach in many ways.  Our UCW groups, men’s groups, children and youth groups all include some form of active outreach ministry.  We also partner with many local agencies and charities as a way of building connections in our community as we seek to improve the wellbeing of those who find themselves marginalized because of socio-economic conditions.  Some organizations we have partnered with include, Medical Ministries International, 30 Hour Famine, Habitat For Humanity, The Open Door, Sleeping Children Around The World and Children of Chernobyl.  We also have a couple of other local initiatives that we share with other neighbouring churches -The Compass Lakeshore Community Outreach Centre and The Church Community Volunteers..

We also have an Outreach Committee that oversees many of these partnerships and works on justice oriented and conscience raising projects.  Projects in the past have included information-action evening on topics ranging from poverty to immigration.
