We believe that following Jesus means graceful hospitality, doing justice, and engaging in mutually transformational relationships locally, nationally, and beyond. Kitsilano Christian Community is part of a long church tradition that aims to fulfill this calling. We are involved financially and practically in these ministries:
A non-profit Christian humanitarian organization helping people re-establish a home. Working in partnership with over 70 member agencies, they give donated home furnishings to people in need.
Kits Cares Café is a weekly café-style community meal at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House, offering a creative and meaningful way to connect with those in social isolation as well as provide for physical needs. (During co-vid weekly grocery hampers are offered instead).
Currently, our community volunteers offer practical, relational and financial support. Kitsilano Christian Community is one of many local churches supporting Kits Cares Café.
Kinbrace House provides supportive transitional housing for refugee claimants in Vancouver, BC. Kinbrace House is actually two houses, side by side, comprised of a number of separate suites, including several single occupancy rooms and larger suites for families.
This organization works to enable people in the developed world to connect with neglected people in the poorest communities on earth through compassionate giving and other opportunities to help. Programs in 20 countries in South Asia and East Africa include helping village people develop clean drinking water, irrigation water, sanitation, agroforestry, microcredit, animal husbandry, health-training; basic necessities that improve health and incomes, leading to self-sufficiency and transformed lives!
