Presbyterian Church, as a Christian organization, makes Mission
work a part of its
everyday life. Our congregation firmly believes that we
should share our good fortune and the gifts God gives us with
others in the world and in our community.
a result, our Church participates in various Mission projects
in the local Regina community, in
Saskatchewan and Canada, and in the wider international community. Projects
range from small and intimate local ones, to longer-term initiatives
in co-operation with Action By Churches Together and other international
Christian and relief agencies.
First Church plays its part
by supporting Presbyterian
World Service and Development on a regular basis, as part
of our Presbyterian heritage. In this way, First Church
in Regina supports many mission projects and initiatives around
the world, especially in the poorest countries and among the
world’s most destitute people.
In addition, our church works
as part of the Regina community by supporting The Regina
and District Food Bank, and assisting the Salvation Army
through the Interdenominational Sunday Lunch Auxiliary to
help feed hungry people in Regina and area.
First Presbyterian Church
is also a contributing member of the Regina Anti-Poverty
The Church undertakes its
own local mission projects such as Freedom from Freezing – a
project where the church members knit hundreds of warm winter
mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves to supply inner-city schools
with clothing items for disadvantaged children.
Mission project the children and youth of the Church have participated
in is “Making
Mission Magic in Malawi”. This program raises funds to
purchase malaria nets for PWS&D’s orphanages in Blantyre
and Livingstonia Presbyteries, in Malawi, Africa.
