Free community meal
Coordinator: Liz bouwmeester, lindsay bouwmeester
One Wednesday a month, GBC hosts a free community meal at 6 pm. We invite everyone in the neighbourhood to attend and we serve a healthy meal, complete with salad and dessert. We are thankful for the many families and singles who attend. We enjoy getting to know our neighbours and the opportunity to share the gospel with them.
Volunteers: This ministry takes a lot of volunteers to run. If you are interested in helping, please speak with liz or lindsay.
Coinciding with our community meal evening, a selection of clothing and shoes of all sizes and shapes is available for free to those who want them.
Volunteers: If you are interested in helping with this ministry, please speak with the deacons.
We have an ongoing cart in our front lobby to collect for local food banks. We run food drives throughout the year to help the Preston Heights Community Centre and we also provide grocery gift cards for those in special need.
