Call to Action

In addition to our specific local and global outreach activities, our faith community supports initiatives to encourages Canada and beyond.
 

The Bay Area Refugee Project

Some folks in our congregation have been working with The Bay Area Refugee Project.  In late February 2016, the group welcomed their first family!

Advocacy

In response to St. Luke’s Reads we invite you to send a letter to the Prime Minister asking the Canadian Government to recognize the essential role that education plays in achieving development goals by increasing Canada’s investment to $120 million to the Global Partnership for Education replenishment 2015-2018. A copy of the letter for signing and sending is available on the table in the entry or by clicking here to download.
 

The Mission & Service Fund

Each week our team of Minute for Mission Readers bring the work of the Mission and Service Fund to life. The Mission and Service Fund of the United Church of
Canada provides support for local, national and international work. 
 

Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism and Community

In the fall of 2014, in coordination with our community partners (Shambhala, St. Margaret's Bay Stewardship Association, and Transition St. Margaret’s) we invited the wider community to a Potluck, Film Screening and Discussion.

The film is stored at St. Luke’s and is available for community groups to view.
Contact outreach@stlukesunited.ca us for more information.
 

Edible Landscaping

Edible Landscaping is the idea that planting edible plants instead of ornamental bushes and plants will not only be pleasant to look at but also provide fresh and delicious produce to add to your meals. St. Luke's partnered with Transition Bay to plan and plant our edible landscaping. The Freedom Renewal Centre and other Volunteers donated time and talent to this worthwhile project.
