We are a member of the Victoria Downtown Churches Association.

This group of Christian clergy and representatives from churches in the downtown and surrounding area of Victoria meets monthly for mutual support and to address issues of common concern.  A DCA member also acts as representative to the Leadership Council of the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness; and also annually participates in the Remembrance Day Ceremonies at the Legislative Buildings on November 11th. Beth Gibson, a member of our church, is currently co-chair. The group meets the first Tuesday of each month at a participating church.
