Nestled between the western shores of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment, in the area known as the “Golden Horseshoe”, Burlington/Oakville are consistently voted one of the best places to live in Canada. Even with that, there are many hidden needs in the cities that God is still revealing. We invite you to experience the love of Christ in this area by bringing hope and healing to our communities. As a body of believers, we feel called to continue to become increasingly immersed in our community, to look for opportunities to walk alongside those here. We would love for your group to come and join our church families as we seek together to worship & experience the transformational love of Christ. We offer a range of ways to live this out: from serving at community-run camps, to working with people with special needs, painting, creation care, helping at local organizations we have connections with that serve the marginalized. This is all done with a focus on relationships, hospitality and love, through the SERVE week and all year round.
We will worship, eat, sleep play volleyball, and hang out mainly at New Street CRC’s building and youth ministry house, “the Outlet”. Both buildings are in central Burlington, are air-conditioned, and well equipped.
