Other Events

Hope encourages building relationships within the congregation by having different events throughout the year:

Due to the Pandemic, we have currently suspended events at Hope Mennonite.

Monthly potlucks: after the service, the congregation is invited to bring some food to share. It's a lovely time to try new food from others and talk with people from church. To accommodate everyone, we ask that food be labeled for allergens (markers and paper will be provided). 

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner: The idea is that people get to visit with others outside their normal social circle. People offer to be guests or hosts. We match people up, and hosts are told how many people will be coming, but not who. Guests are told where to go, but are not told who their hosts are, or who else will be attending. The mystery is revealed on the day.

Curling at Sperling: a day away from our routine church gathering for fun community building at Sperling, MB, usually in the dead of winter. Whether you feel like playing board games, singing, colouring, eating good food, skating, knitting, curling or trying any of the above, there will be something for you at Hope's Curling at Sperling.

Church Retreat: a weekend away at Camp Assiniboia (Camps With Meaning), usually in late spring, where the congregation meets together for a few days. This creates space to get to know each other better, to have fun, to enjoy the outdoors, to work and to worship together.

Here are a few ways Hope engages with our surrounding community: 

Lunch Program- serving the community at Crossways in Common.

West Broadway Community Ministries (WBCM)- individual volunteers serve at WBCM and others organize food drives to collect food.

Justice Team- takes actions to respond to climate change, and to work toward more justice between indigenous and settler peoples.

Goods & Services Auction- an annual event that raises money for West Broadway Community Ministries.  People contribute items or services for sale, and the highest bidder takes it home.   

Pride Sunday- On the Sunday of Pride Week, Hope worships jointly with our friends at Young United, then goes to take our place in the Pride Parade.  Keep an eye out for the matching blue t-shirts.

Refugees- Hope has some involvement in sponsoring and supporting refugees over the years. A group from within Hope is currently supporting a family from Syria.
