Rev. Erasmus Madimbu
The Outreach committee is responsible for:
- Educating our members about what the United Church is doing in other countries; who is working overseas, and who our overseas partners are.
- Educating ourselves and others about any justice issues that might rise.
- Passing on any urgent appeals for help from conference or National.
- Keeping abreast of what is happening in our community and other areas in Canada.
- Raising awareness of Mission & Service.
Our committee covers a wide range of issues from Outreach to Church in Society and Stewardship. We presently have a committee of 6, and meet an hour before the Presbytery meeting; other times if required. We tend to pick one topic a year and work with that as our portfolio is large and our time on the floor small.
