serving at Crossroads!
Community Dinners at Crossroads
Crossroads is intentional about being a welcoming presence in the community by offering a free monthly community meal. We seek to offer nutritious food and God’s hospitality over a shared table in a safe setting. Since 2012 we have offered home-style food and enjoyed warm company on the fourth Saturday of each month, with the doors opening at 4:30 pm and dinner being served at 5:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome! Ask us about our volunteer roles.
Community Dinner @ The Oak Avenue Neighbourhood Hub Society
Twice a year people of Crossroads traditionally offer their gifts of hospitality by organizing and serving a community meal at the Hub in North Surrey. We look forward to the moment when the Hub resumes their Community Dinners post-Covid.
CREW — Healing Garden Ministry
When Covid landed, Crossroads had recently planted an intergenerational ministry to cultivate generosity of service and reflection on where God is present in the world. During the Covid era, CREW became an opportunity to gather outside on the Crossroads property, and work together to learn permaculture principles and renew the 119A part of our property, turning it into a healing garden. Adults, children and youth have all worked together to design the garden and install new beds… so far we have a very popular strawberry bed, an indigenous plants bed, and our very first bed: a variety of herbs and small shrubs including a small fig.
Is ongoing throughout the year. Weeding, gardening and lawn-mowing are some acts of service that are needed in our Crossroads outdoors space. Building maintenance is another area of service in which handy people are most welcome to offer their gifts.
Food Pantry is Becoming Nick’s Nook
This team traditionally met regularly to assemble small grocery hampers that were given to those who come to us in need. However, we are about to install a “Nick’s Nook” on the 119A side of our property, which will replace this ministry. Stay tuned!
Garage Sale & Christmas Sale
In Spring and November, volunteer teams organize eco-friendly services to our neighbourhood. Many hands are needed for organizing, promoting, pricing, setting-up and cleaning-up. Especially prized are those whose spiritual gifts include climbing ladders while lifting boxes!
A behind-the-scenes act of giving. A small team provides a gracious table of refreshments for Sunday worship, memorial services and/or special events.
Intercessory Prayer Team
This dedicated group of pray-ers meets together once every other month but prays on their own without ceasing! If you have a heart for praying for those in the Crossroads community and beyond who are ill, near death, or grieving we welcome you to join us.
From Scripture reading, to occasional lay preaching; from offering the weekly welcome and announcements to offering the Prayers of the People; from children lighting the Christ candle to youth and adults providing technology support (Zoom hosting, projection, camera operation, and sound); and not forgetting the greeters, ushers, and even chair movers, so many gifts are regularly needed during our Sunday morning worship services! Your gifts are welcome, too.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
This group gathers from 10:00 a.m. to noon on the second Wednesday of each month to knit, crochet and pray for those who are in need of God’s embrace of healing love.
Refugee Sponsorship Steering Committee
This group of North Delta church members (from St. Cuthbert Anglican, North Delta Evangelical Free, Trinity Lutheran, and Crossroads United) has completed three sponsorships (two families and one single person) and is preparing for their next sponsorship experience.
