Parkwoods people care about each other and about those beyond our Church walls, both locally and globally. Volunteers contribute time, energy and financial gifts to our many outreach programmes.

Community and Global Outreach: We strive to help those in need in and around our community and within the wider world. You are most welcome to join in the focus of any of the activities listed below.

  • Massey Centre – one of two shelters that Parkwoods supports, our congregation raises funds and donates items with pregnant teens and single mothers in mind.
  • Over the past year, Parkwoods has sponsored and supported a Syrian Refugee Family.
  • Parkwoods regularly conducts emergency relief fund responses to natural disasters.
  • Eva’s Place, a shelter for youth. Parkwoods offers broad-based support: food, items oriented to teens, clothing and money donations.
  • 40 Oaks: Special Liaison and Support for Christian Resource Centre (CRC) 40 Oaks.
  • The Linkert Memorial Fund Committee: administers widespread support to a wide variety of outreach activities locally and globally.
