Started as a pilot project in January of 1998, Centre 7 is modelled on programs in Toronto and elsewhere. Centre 7's aim is to serve those whose low incomes discourage an active life but whose need for a meeting place with friends and a good hot meal is the same as others'. Through Out-of-the-Cold Saturday Suppers, Southminster United Church provides local outreach while living part of its mission to serve others and to stand with those who live on the margins of society.
Centre 7 is an ecumenical community outreach project jointly supported by Trinity Anglican, St. Matthew's Anglican and Southminster United churches. Each church contributes financial support and volunteers to run the program. Other churches in the area have also made both financial and volunteer contributions at various times.
A vegetarian option is provided each week. We are wheelchair accessible. Children are welcome.
The project would not succeed without its volunteers, who are members of neighbourhood churches (including Southminster), neighbourhood families, university students and other enthusiastic workers. Volunteers are used in all the following areas.
Set up and take down
Kitchen clean up
Delivering food to tables and socializing with guests
Preparing muffins, vegetarian dishes and/or desserts as needed.
If you would like to volunteer, please email email@example.com.

Cheques should be made payable to "Southminster United Church" with "Centre 7" noted in the memo line. Donations for Centre 7 may also be made through CanadaHelps.org with this link.
