Neighbourhood (formerly Love Abbotsford) is an outreach and ministry of KBC, which happens once a month on a Sunday afternoon with volunteers from (mainly) our NightChurch congregation.
We arrive at the Wellington St Community Housing Estates in Collingwood and head straight to the playground/BBQ area, where our team spend a few hours serving the community. Our team cook up a free BBQ lunch which we all share together.
Whilst we are cooking the BBQ, our amazing volunteers throw themselves into engaging with the community in a number of practical and fun ways. This is done through playing soccer, basketball and chasey, as well we have our teams either painting the faces of some of the young children or the young children painting the faces of our team members.
