Talbot Street Church is an urban church located in London’s downtown core. London is a growing city of a half-million residents with a growing and exciting downtown scene. However, like in almost any city, there is a sad underside with many who are experiencing poverty, homelessness, and addiction. Talbot Street Church partners with Sanctuary London to love and serve that street level population. SERVE residents will regularly interact with street level folks and work in a variety of organizations serving the marginalized.
Participants will stay at Talbot Street Church, located in the heart of downtown. This facility has bright carpeted rooms for sleeping, and is air conditioned. Showers are located off site at the local YMCA.
We will spend the morning of our day away at a nearby conservation area which has lots of trails and a beautiful waterfall. The afternoon with be at the beach on the shore of Lake Huron.
Registration fees do NOT include transportation to and from the sites. Each church group must provide vehicle(s) and adult driver(s) for the entire mission experience regardless of whether you fly or drive to the site. The vehicles you bring will be used to transport small groups to the work site each day, so 12-passenger vans or mini-vans are preferred. Cars do not facilitate the transportation of an entire small group in one vehicle, so please do not bring them. If you wish to bring a bus, please check with the Host Team to see if this is acceptable before you make arrangements. If your group is unable to provide van transportation, please have a youth leader call the ThereforeGo Ministries office to discuss options and additional charges.
For your decision-making purposes, the closest airport is London, ON International Airport (YXU). Please DO NOT book airfare until you have received email confirmation from ThereforeGo Ministries that you have been placed at this site.
