Outreach Focus: Homeward Bound Programme

Homeward Bound Peterborough is delivered by the Peterborough Housing Corporation, serving the City of Peterborough and Peterborough County

Homeward Bound is an innovative wrap-around programme supporting homeless or inadequately housed single mothers to earn college diplomas, start careers and achieve financial self-sufficiency. Peterborough participants are encouraged to pursue careers in the trades. The region is home to Fleming College’s state-of-the-art School of Trades and Technology, and local labour market opportunities for women in the trades are booming.

In addition to financial support, the Parish also provides cleaning and household items for the women in the Outward Bound Programme. Here (on right) is a "cleaning brigade" ready for the residents.

Caring for our local community and beyond

About 30 per cent of our annual budget is given in service to others. Here are some of the projects and initiatives that are our focus in 2024

A Journey in Learning and Discovery

By all reports: A very popular learning series

Christian Foundations -- A grounding for a Life of Faith

The Christian Foundations Series has been running each Thursday over the course of the fall season. About a third of the parish regular congregation have seized the opportunity to participate.

Feedback is extremely positive. "I'm learning a lot of new stuff and it's fun too," is a typical comment from participants.

The Christian Foundations Series is aimed at helping people to acquire a basic understanding of the Teachings of Jesus.

Enquire about future sessions: let us know.
