West End Drop-in (1Just City)
(formerly St Matthew's Maryland Community Ministry)
Members of St Mary Anglican work with and support the inner-city community ministry of 1Just City's West End site. West End Drop-In is temporarily housed at the 1Just City West Broadway site at 222 Furby St. (Crossways in Common), while they look for a new location.
We are one of five parishes providing ongoing active support to the West End Drop In of 1Just City through the St. Matthews Maryland Anglican Consortium (Diocese of Rupert’s Land) as well as several United Churches in Winnipeg. These relationships draw on the shared ministry of St. Matthew's Anglican Church and the former Maryland United Church that shared the building for many years.
Volunteers from St. Mary who would enjoy meeting our friends in the West End are welcome to sign up for various positions using the link https://signup.com/go/FBHpcpx The areas requiring volunteers are hospitality, a friend, food bank, community barbecues etc.
St. Mary supports the annual fundraiser for the Drop-In, the Urban Retreats Garden Tour. Next year's tour will be held June 22, 2024, featuring gardens of Charleswood including St. Mary's Abundance Community Garden.
We also provide donations of non-perishable food items for the Emergency Food Cupboard - stocked primarily by supporting congregations. Emergency Food Cupboard's most in need items:
We acknowledge that we meet and work on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional land of the Anishinaabe, Cree, and Dakota peoples and the homeland of the Metis Nation. We are grateful for their stewardship of this land and their hospitality which allows us to live, work and serve God the Creator here.
