First has a heart for the city...

From our early days meeting in a pub to the inception of our Heart for the City Project, we have prioritized knowing and loving our neighbours. We express God’s heart for our city through a number of programs including our Tuesday Night Shelter, and various partnerships with community organizations. 

Partnering with our neighbours...

First often connects and partners with local people and organizations to seek the common good of the community in which God has placed us.

The church has partnered with various groups and organizations to serve families, refugees, the international community and many others in the downtown core. At other times, the church attends community events together or holds events of interest for those who do not regularly attend.


If you are interested in getting involved or have an opportunity you’d like to suggest, then please email Bob Swann.
