Christ Community Church is a missional church located in and ministering to people of the inner city in Welland, Ontario. In a neighbourhood where people wrestle with addictions and mental health challenges are extreme, people also struggle to make ends meet. Christ Community Church is a constant presence, offering hope, acceptance, and warmth.
Key scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:9
Come alongside Christ Community Church to repair and improve their building so that their ministry can continue to flourish. Current projects that need help are repairing walls, painting the gymnasium, and upgrading light fixtures to high efficiency standards. Volunteers will need to be comfortable working on scaffolding.
Depending on group size, accommodations may be available in homes, the church building, and local campgrounds. Food will be provided.
Mission partners help sustain a church in this context, so groups that can assist with the cost of materials for work projects are especially needed. Projects may vary and can be identified prior to arrival.
American groups should pack with Canadian customs rules and regulations in mind.
Niagara is full of natural beauty. Visit one of the city’s parks, canoe on the Welland recreational canal, or drive 30 minutes to Niagara Falls.
Volunteers age 15 and older of all skill levels are welcome, although it may be helpful to have someone with construction or electrical experience on your team.
