Our Boarding Homes Ministry is one of our most successful ministries at Beaches. Our team meet with the Boarding Homes men every Monday and throughout the year help them to enjoy special meals. A Barbeque in the summer; Thanksgiving; Christmas and Easter. The team wish to provide an Easter Dinner for the men and would appreciate the help of our congregation again. We could provide some salads, bread/rolls and perhaps some dessert. If you are interested speak to Mary, Erin or Tim on Sunday.

MISSION CAPSULES: One way our church is helping vulnerable families lead healthier lives is by improving their access to clean water. In Lyness's village in Malawi, inadequate toilets led to the contamination of open water sources and the spread of illnesses like diarrhea. But all that has changed. A PWS&D supported program helped build sanitation platforms in Lyness's village. These platforms improve the cleanliness of the latrine, it's safety and ease of use. "My family no longer suffers from diarrhea as a result of poor sanitation and hygiene," shares Lyness. Clean water and proper sanitation facilities are improving the health and well-being of vulnerable communities in our global village.
