MISSION CAPSULES: Through Presbyterians Sharing … Kenora Fellowship Centre is nurturing, healing and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. Also called Anamiewigummig, meaning “House of Prayer”, the centre provides sanctuary and hospitality for people marginalized and alienated by poverty and addiction. A weekly worship service held on Sunday afternoons often includes a sharing circle, drumming and the sharing of traditional foods. Through a drop-in centre, detoxification programs, street patrol and soup kitchen, each day the hardworking staff share God’s love as well as friendship, community and solidarity. This ministry represents a place of hope for healing and wholeness and serves as a model of Christian community for the wider church.
