KICKERS CAMPS

Every summer, as a way to support the young families in our neighbourhood, we run two affordable soccer & art camps that are open to ages 3-14 years old. Children, preteens, and teens have the opportunity to learn the essential skills needed to be an effective soccer player, teammate and leader on and off the soccer field. It is a wonderful way to improve their fitness, self-esteem and confidence. Subsidies can be made available. For more information, click here

Heart for the city PROJECT

Central to our HFTC Project is our desire to be more like Jesus by extending his hospitality to others. We are relational beings, needing to connect, to find community. That feeling alone has become a major issue as reflected by the 2012 survey on “Connections and Engagement” by the Vancouver Foundation. We intend to be a light in the community to help resolve this issue in our community. We seek to work for the peace and prosperity of our city by delivering heritage conversation and innovative architecture, environmental and social sustainability (in alignment with the West End Community Plan), and public spaces.
