Our congregation is organized so that the work of the church happens via dedicated teams of people with a passion for a certain ministry.
Teams draw together to plan and carry out ministry offerings that will deepen faith and further the congregation’s mission and God’s work in the world. Among them are:
This group has led the congregation in our exploration of diversity, and continues to guide our efforts to be a welcoming and respectful community of faith.
Children, Youth and KidVenture Teams
Many volunteers are needed to enliven our ministry offerings with children and youth. If you are interested in serving in any of these ministries, please be in touch with Minister of Children and Youth, Gabrielle McLarty.
Healing Garden Ministry
A team of Crossroads members, neighbours and families is forming around the emerging Healing Garden on the boulevard of 119A Street behind the church. Healing our relationship with creation, as well as providing a natural space for people to experience personal healing at Crossroads, are the goals of this team. Participants will receive training in sheet mulch gardening, learn the functions and healing properties of different plants, and experience a process of designing from pattern to details, while healing one small patch of the earth.
Pastoral Care Visitors Team
This group of people is dedicated to the care of folks who are in hospital or extended care, who are part of the Crossroads community. They receive training to visit in the spirit of Jesus, and bring comfort and companionship with them.
Spiritual Practices Team
This “small but mighty” team has planned retreats, led workshops, hosted Enneagram days and Prayer days, Labyrinth walks and Lenten and Advent studies, and generally seeks opportunities to deepen the faith of adults at Crossroads.
This team gathers to reflect together on the purpose of worship, to schedule special worship events, and to support the life and participation of the congregation in the worship of God.
