The Neighbourhood Ministry is a collaborative effort led by the Anglican Churches of St. Anselm’s, St. Helen’s, St. John’s Shaughnessy and St. Philip’s, all under the Diocese of New Westminster:  We are blessed with enthusiastic volunteers within the parishes and throughout the neighbourhood who offer their time, skill and compassion to serving the homeless.
