Outreach

Outreach

Our primary Outreach in our church comes through the Victoria Rainbow Kitchen Society, which serves a hot lunch meal to 120-140 guests five days per week in Wheeley Hall.  The kitchen creates a safe, comfortable environment which enables the building of relationships and support networks.  See more about the Rainbow Kitchen here.

We have 2 groups running AA meetings in the building, Last Chance runs Sunday evenings at 8-9 pm in the lounge across from Wheeley Hall and Old School AA which runs from 7:30-8:30 in the Family Room upstairs in the Church end of the building.

Our gardens attract lots of folks from the neighbourhood as does our little 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.

The Pajama Prance is not to be missed in December as the community runs around the neighbourhood while collecting food for the Rainbow Kitchen, then gathers for a delicious pancake breakfast hosted by the Esquimalt Lions.

We host a free clothing and toy exchange which is not to be missed.

The Neighbourhood Hootenanny Time Machine family dance is so much fun!

Buddhist Meditation has a drop-in session on Thursdays at 1 pm run by the Bodhitchitta Meditation Center

Listening Heart Spiritual Meditation takes place generally on the first and third Friday of the month at 1:30 in the Family room upstairs in the church end of the building.  All are welcome.

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, VIPaddlers, Commissionaires, Girl Guides, Esquimalt Photo Club, View Royal Garden Club, Victoria Fiddlers Society and the Sooke Family Resource Society are just a few.
