The God of Christian Scriptures desires to recover relationship with all human beings. As a church community we are called to be an agent of reconciliation. We point people to relationship with God, our loving Creator, through salvation and healing that is offered freely in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. As a faith community we are compelled to live out, to demonstrate, and to communicate this good news to all.
We seek to do this locally in our own community of St Catharines via:
The Grapeview Daycare Program was established in 1988 as a missional response to needs in our community. Our staff serve 30-40 children daily and seek to connect with the whole child – socially, emotionally, cognitively, physically, and spiritually. We strive to promote a positive self-image for each child by encouraging exploration, fostering the development of social skills, cultivating friendships, and promoting a strong sense of community. We support, encourage and facilitate a co-operative working relationship with parents in order to meet the needs of the children entrusted to our care.
St George’s Breakfast
For more than a decade, volunteers from Grapeview Church have been regularly involved in serving breakfast at St George’s Anglican Church, downtown. The breakfast is entirely free and is available to anybody who needs a meal, no questions asked. 60-80 persons are regularly served.
Over the years, Grapeview has been a home for dozens of international students and their families. Brock University and Niagara College students have found a warm welcome, as church members help with transportation, medical needs, visa concerns and ESL conversations.
