Care + Culture

 

Peace Portal is committed to provide care to meet both physical and spiritual needs by providing a wide range of care ministries for individuals and families within our church and community.  

We are committed to demonstrating the generous love of God in our neighbourhoods and globally through structured involvement in prioritized community services as well as church based outreach programs.



Peace Portal Counselling Centre

Peace Portal Counselling Centre is a professionally credentialed community-based clinic. Given the diversity of our counsellors, we are able to specialize in helping individuals of all ages who are struggling with counselling issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, addictions, marriage, parenting, etc.



Alpha

If you or your friends have curious questions about life, faith or Christianity we invite you to the next session of Alpha. The course is fun, relaxed and totally non-pressured (that's probably why over 18 million people around the world have already done it). The evening begins with a meal at 6:30 pm and is followed by an entertaining video and open discussion. Everyone is welcome!

If you have any questions please email alpha@peaceportalalliance
