St. John's Outreach

As a church we financially support the PWRDF, a relief and development fund run by the national church.  The money is used to further ongoing programs throughout the world, including some in indigenous communities in Canada.  These projects include drilling wells, assisting small farmers with seed and livestock and providing start-up funding for cottage industries.  When needed contributions are made for disaster and refugee relief.  Our congregation contributes financially to the diocesan outreach organization Faith Works which directs funding to programs that aid marginalized people.

In the recent past we have sponsored two refugee families; one from Iraq living in a camp in Syria, and the second from Liberia living in a camp in the Ivory Coast.

We also support local programs that minister to marginalized people in our community and in Peterborough (e.g., Millbrook Food Share, Street Hope, One City, One Roof Diner).  This support is both financial and as volunteers.

In addition, a couple in our congregation operate a ministry in Belize that assists families and communities by financing children’s education, food programs and local agricultural initiatives.  We also save pop cans for “The Can Man” who sells them for their value as aluminum.  The money is donated to Sleeping Children of the World to buy bed kits.
