Outreach

For over 100 years, West Point Grey United Church has been serving the needs of people in the local community, Vancouver, and the world by reaching out with their hearts and support in a variety of ways.  Among other things, we are currently helping to sponsor two Tibetan refugee women, support the work of First United Mission in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, reach out as neighbours to the ethnic community by providing ESL classes and intercultural gatherings, participate in the reconciliation work of building bridges with our Aboriginal brothers and sisters, and donate financially to world relief situations like the Ebola Crisis in Africa.  We invite you to join us in this and other work of justice and peace.  For more information, please contact the church office at 604-224-4388 or make a financial contribution by going to the 'Giving' page of this website.
