Reaching Out

In Our Community

VBS Camp 2017



Soap Kitchen

The Soap Kitchen is a free monthly workshop-style morning where you are invited to make cost effective and "green" laundry soap. Making this laundry soap is a fun way to connect with our community.  For more information, please contact the church office.
Athens Street Community Gardens
The community gardens is a joint effort by Immanuel Christian Reformed Church and the nearby Neighbour-To-Neighbour food bank and resource centre. Started on April 21, 2007, the garden has 27 plots where about 25 gardeners grow some of their own food. People of a variety of income levels, young and old, Canadian-born and immigrants have the opportunity to get together and share their gardening experiences.

Immanuel Christian Reformed Church members coordinate the goings-on at the garden, provide garden plots, plants, and seeds, and garden alongside the community gardeners. Neighbour-To-Neighbour makes applications available to its clients, and provides water for the garden plots.

Gardeners have expressed that they love coming to a beautiful green space, and that they appreciate the opportunity to enjoy growing fresh, good food themselves. We hope and trust that God will use Athens Street Community Garden to create a supportive community, and that our church community will be a blessing to the gardeners.

If you are interested in having a Community Garden Plot or would like more information about the garden, please contact the church office.
