Esquimalt United is privileged to be the home of the Victoria Rainbow Kitchen Society, whose hot lunch program is just one of the many things it does. Rainbow Kitchen creates a safe, comfortable environment for its guests. The relationship between the church and the Rainbow Kitchen is certainly of mutual benefit.
We have three AA meetings in the building. For schedules, click here.
Our gardens attract folks from the neighbourhood as does our little lending library. Come and check them out. And of course, there is the "Plant Sale that we are not having" every spring.
We participate in the Buccaneers Days fun and take part in local parades.
We host the free Esquimalt Toy and Clothing Exchange which is not to be missed. Colette, the originator of the exchange, approached the church to see if a swap could be held most months. It's free to attend and there is usually a lot of clothes, even if you don't have any to bring for swapping. Spare items are taken to various organizations such as Our Place, the Compassionate Warehouse, and the Esquimalt Neighbourhood House.
The Neighbourhood Hootenanny Time Machine family dances are always so much fun!
Buddhist Meditation has a drop-in session on Fridays at 1 pm, run by the Bodhichitta Kadampa Buddhist Centre.
We have choir practice at 9:30 before our 10:30 am Sunday worship.
We are delighted to share our space with many other groups, the Pre-Maternelle Appletree Pre-School, VI Paddling, Girl Guides, Esquimalt Photo Club, View Royal Garden Club, and the Victoria Fiddle Society are just a few.
