Local Outreach

Garden of Hope

In the Spring of 2012, in partnership with the Life Resource Centre, the Garden of Hope Community Garden was officially opened! The 2-acre garden is an urban farming initiative that is focused on meeting the nutrition, health, and employment needs of members of refugee immigrant families. The Garden of Hope not only provides people with an opportunity to grow food from their home countries, but also provides an affordable, healthy source of fresh fruits and vegetables. For years, we as a church have been trying to sell this land. Turns out, God had other plans.
 
If you would like a plot in our garden, you can contact Teresa Stainton through our church office 519-457-7072.
 

International Student Dinners
(Focus Club)

Our church loves to bring people together for fellowship and to connect, especially when we involve food! We have partnered with the International Student groups at Fanshawe College and Western University and host monthly potluck dinners for them here at the church. It is a great opportunity for our church to give a little taste of home and family to these students who are so far from home. We love this ministry and hope you’ll join us for our next potluck! We post the date of our dinners in the bulletin and on our church calendar. If you would like to get involved, contact the church office 519-457-7072 for more info.
If you attend our church and would like to get involved either by bringing food for the potluck or connecting with the student, contact the church office for more info. If you are a student looking to know more about Focus Club, visit their website here.

Ark Aid

We at Stoney Creek Baptist Church strongly believe in helping those in need and that we are always in the mission field. When we are caring for our brothers and sisters, we are caring for Christ and showing God’s love to them. Our group meets every third Monday at Ark Aid Mission at 6:30pm and help to feed those who come. This is a great chance for you to meet and get to know those who are society tends to ignore and really build relationships with them. If you are interested but would like more information, contact the church.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me…” 
Matthew 25:35

Boullee Soccer

Boullee soccer started in 2009 as a drop in soccer ministry in partnership with Knollwood Baptist Church as a way of building relationships and connecting with people in the community and showing the love of Jesus in practical ways. It started with playing soccer and enjoying snacks together, but we began to see more and more children coming out but not necessarily joining in the soccer game. This prompted us to began bringing in a few other activities such as skipping to be able to engage across different levels. All of this gives us the opportunities to seek out connections, have conversations and build relationships with children as well as their families that otherwise we many not be able to. It runs every Wednesday at 6:00pm from May until September at Huron Heights Park, weather permitting. If you would like more info about this outreach, contact the church.
