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.

**currently not running

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

Divorce Care

Divorce Care is a small group dedicated to come alongside you as you find healing from the pain of separation or divorce. In this 14 week, video-based support group, you’ll find helpful insights to help you manage your emotional turmoil and practical tools for decision making on this journey. The course is tailored to the person who attends from week one forward, not occasional drop ins. The course will run on Tuesday nights starting on September 19th at Peace Portal Alliance church from 7:00 to 8:30pm.

Please contact before the course begins to obtain registration information.

Nurturing Hope

This adoption and fostering support group, invites parents on this journey to join us every third Sunday at 5:30pm. Currently, we are only meeting online. This is a faith-based community where we share the joys and sorrows of the journey and support each other through prayer and meaningful conversation. For more information, email us

Tea & Company

Have you recently or within the last few years lost a spouse, a family member or a friend? Grieving takes longer than most expect it to and it can be a lonely, discouraging time. Tea and Company will be a place where you can chat over a cup of tea or coffee with others who have also experienced a loss and understand what you are facing. Facilitators from our Care Ministry will also be present to listen to your questions and provide helpful guidance in conversations. Join us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in the Café at 1:30pm starting September 26. No registration required. Drop-ins welcome.
