The people of Christ Church have accepted as part of their mission:
to live each day in service to family, friends, and neighbours, and
to feed and nurture the community in body and spirit
In that vein, we are committed to serving our community and the world through:
Community Gathering Place - Ashton United Church offers a community gathering place for people to enjoy coffee, tea, and fellowship Tuesdays from 8:00 am to noon. Members of Christ Church are dedicated to supporting this ministry of hospitality and communion in the Village. A free will donation is welcome to help offset cost of supplies. Funds raised through the Gathering Place have supported the building of a new shed and purchase of a new sound system at Christ Church, as well as allow donations to be made to local charities.
Lankark County Food Bank - we accept donations of non-perishables each week during Sunday worship and deliver the goods to the Food Bank monthly. Last year we were proud to have donated over 1800 lbs in an effort to help end hunger.
Interval House - "Do not be afraid" is referenced in the Bible 365 times. We are proud to support this safe place of refuge for women & children who are victims of abuse or violence. Items for sale at the God's Got You Covered Nearly New Shoppe that do not sell within a month are donated to Interval House.
