Food Ministry

Offering hospitality to our neighbours while helping to address food insecurity is one of our most important ministries .

St. A's is pleased to offer 2 dinners-to-go every Thursday evening between 6pm and 7pm. One of our meals is a bagged sandwich meal, and the other is a hot meal. No cost.


St. A's also hosts the Marpole Community Food Hub, where several community organizations are working in collaboration to provide groceries at no cost to our neighbours every Thursday from 10am - 12pm.

Everyone is welcome!

Volunteers are also always appreciated!

Neighbourhood and Global Outreach Ministries

2nd Hand Rows & Pop-Up Thrift Stores

Our neighbourhood thrift store, 2nd Hand Rows, is closed due to COVID; instead we are hosting COVID-safe pop-up thrift shops. Check our Home page for the next one!

Garden Retreat & Little Library

St. A's is blessed to be able to offer a quiet space for meditation and reflection in our garden. Our garden is part of the Butterflyway Project of the David Suzuki Foundation, creating thriving habitats for our butterflies and bees. We also care for our local hummingbirds and songbirds, and offer a lending library - take a book, leave a book - free of charge.
