Community Services Outreach Program
Metropolitan's Community Services outreach programs help people in need, and this is our way of putting faith into action in the broader community. Our programs assist with food and clothing and provide counseling and referrals to appropriate community resources. Staff assist clients in moving to greater independence by helping them to access housing and employment and by providing ongoing support. The immediate objective is to help people recover their self-esteem and get back on their feet. The church's longer-term goal is to work for social justice in society.
This goal is based on the belief that outreach is fundamentally different from charity; we must address not only social problems, but also their causes.
Our programs are delivered in Metropolitan's newly renovated lower level, known as the Metropolitan Centre. And this is a centre: a centre of need, warmth and caring. Here, we not only help others, but come away amazed at how much we can grown and learn.
