Collier’s Mission Fund
Financial support is given to support mission work and service outside of our church, not to ourselves. Emphasis is to be on local outreach, such as the David Busby Street Centre, provincial/national outreach such as Georgian Native & Outreach Ministry, and international outreach such as Mercy Ships. Please refer to the most recent Link Newsletter or church bulletin for details on donations.
2018 dates: June 9 and October 20
In the Christian tradition, “Table” is a place where all are equal, all are welcome and where there is enough for all.
Over the years, Collier has developed a unique partnership with the David Busby Street Centre that helps us be in touch with the needs of those in our city who are dealing with poverty for whatever reason. The goal of our meals is not to just provide food and send people on their way, but to have deeper “table” conversations with those who come so that the hearts and minds of our volunteers can be opened and transformed by a relationship with the people they meet.
In the Fall of 2011, we began offering community meals and clothing depots to those living with poverty. Collier’s Table provides a nourishing, delicious meal at no cost to community members. At our latest event in October 2017, we shared more than 350 meals.
These events are so successful due to the overwhelming support and generosity provided by the congregation and volunteers! As a church, we are blessed by sharing what we have and others are blessed by receiving. We are also blessed through the relationships nurtured during these events. Our grateful hearts and caring hands make such a difference in this outreach and there is an amazing, powerful and caring spirit so evident at these events! It truly is the hands of God in action.
