Boarding Homes Ministry has been selected to receive the 2011 E.H. Johnson Award for ministry at ‘the cutting edge of mission’. Our home groups have been recognized as a vital source of ongoing, mutual mission between residents and church visitors.

Mission statement

Founded in 1996 Boarding Homes Ministry nurtures Christian community by linking the residents of boarding homes with visitors from congregations. Regular visits are established and relationships flourish as friends share life in Christ.

“Perhaps life is all about celebrating God and people.” – Resident

“Share love so that others can carry on.” – Resident

“As I looked around the room I saw how each of these unique people was beautiful.” – Team member

We are called to live in a joyful, profound, restorative communion with God and neighbour.

But there can be people in our society who are not automatically part of our union. Such people must be received, and so the church is required to move out beyond its walls.

To help illustrate how new communions can be developed we will turn to art work commissioned for our Church School Curriculum project, Cat Jeoffry.
