The mission of Potter’s Place is to visibly, tangibly and measurably transform the Downtown Eastside (East Hastings Street) through the power of God. Volunteers are needed to serve free meals after a worship service, twice daily.
Located in the Downtown Eastside, Potter’s Place desires to see the street people come out of their present situation of hopelessness and loss of self-worth, as evidenced by their poverty, continual welfare dependency, involvement in substance abuse and addiction, prostitution, and high suicidal tendencies, and have their lives restored for the glory of God.
A group of Willingdon members has secured the 3rd Sunday of every month to serve to start in May. So far the dates are May 15, Jun 19, Jul 17, Aug 21, and Sep 18. Typically, we are responsible to prepare and serve the meals and clean up afterward. We also provide the music for worship and share a Gospel message.
A typical evening is,
7:15pm Prepare meal
8:00pm Worship Service begins (1 hour earlier than before)
8:30pm Gospel Message
9:00pm Serve Meal and Clean up
We should finish the clean-up and set up by 10pm. This can be a great “group-serve” opportunity for your LifeGroup, co-workers, etc while serving God. We are looking to send teams of 6-8 people per evening, plus the worship team.
