A monthly women’s group makes quilts and comforters to support the peace, relief and development work of Mennonite Central Committee. This takes place the first Wednesday of each month, September – June, 9am-3pm. Bring your own lunch and come when you can.

On the church grounds is a large garden which provides income and fresh produce for the Food Bank at Wilmot Family Resource Centre. If you would like to help with the garden or donate some plants, contact the church office.

Maker’s Market in November provides alternative gift options created by close to 30 local artisans. Proceeds from a soup lunch support Wilmot Family Resource Centre. More information available in late October.
