Our congregation of 25-40 is small enough to provide ample opportunities for the development of lay ministry skills, close friendship ties, and meaningful personal worship experiences in a picturesque country setting. Theologically conservative in the Methodist tradition, our family worship service is both traditional and informal. A relaxed dress code and friendly people make it easy for visitors to feel at home. Compassionate projects for various humanitarian causes reflect the heartbeat and mission of Kolapore Church: to live love, teach truth, and encourage the Christian life in all we say and do, in our community and abroad; "Faith expressed through love." (Gal. 5:6b)
OUR SERVICES TO THE COMMUNITY
Each year Kolapore Church generously contributes compassionate funding for the relief of international humanitarian crises through special projects. In partnership with 2 other city churches our local grow project sends the profits from our annual field of grain overseas through the Canadian FoodGrains Bank. In December we conduct a Christmas dinner and charity auction for the hungry, forwarding funds through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries Canada. Alabaster funds are utilized to erect buildings for medical and ministry centres in needy areas.
Locally, we assist those who find themselves in unexpected crises, and strive to bring practical encouragement in the best ways possible.
Individual. premarital and marital counselling is available by appointment only, from Pastor Goudy (BA, BSL, MRE, MA, Ph D)
