Restore Halton helps our neighbours having troubles access resources in the community to help them help themselves. There are several groups in our congregation assisting families or individuals in crisis situations. So far our congregation has helped an immigrant family, a woman suffering from debilitating health issues and a family of young people between the ages of 14 and 21 that have been left orphaned. A training session is provided before you join a team or a partner and are matched with a family or individual.
At the June 18th AGM, the congregation was updated on our progress of the United Churches’ Loving God, Loving Neighbourhood initiative. If you wish a copy of the update report from the AGM it is available from Dorothy Gartshore at email@example.com. This initiative, which started with the Identity, Mission & Needs Analysis survey, focuses on strengthening the bond between individual United Churches and their surrounding communities.
What’s Next: As of June 25th we will have completed our Table Talk sessions.
Maple Grove now has now has ten volunteers helping three families to rebuild their lives. Consider joining our Restore Halton team and help a neighbour in need help themselves.
