Connecting Streams Ministries

Our Ministries

As we gather together in community, God brings connection, healing and hope. We welcome you to be a part of the life-transforming work that Jesus does when we meet with vulnerable populations.

Connecting Streams equips and mobilizes the Church to reach society’s vulnerable populations through six ministry streams: Addiction Recovery (ARM), Widow to Widow (W2W), Inner City, Intercultural, Long-Term Care & Seniors, and Prison. Our ministries foster faith and hope, providing the support needed to make a meaningful impact. Let us help you take the first steps towards engaging these communities!

Addiction Recovery

We partner with addiction recovery facilities in relational small group settings focused on encouragement and faith. We facilitate a Christ-centered 12-step program as a safe place to access support and be set free from addictions.

Long-Term Care & Seniors

We provide church volunteer teams with the necessary tools and resources to minister in long term care communities and retirement homes.

We will assist churches in focussing on shut-ins within the church community, also the members of the community who are aging at home, many without any support.

We will also help to provide focus on the caregivers who need the support of the church.

“It has been such a privilege to go to the Alzheimer’s unit in the Strathcona Care Centre every week. Often, the seniors can be lonely, confused, and needing a little encouragement. We sing, read scripture, pray with them, and give them a little tender loving care. Often, they remember the old hymns of the faith — they respond with a big smile. What a blessing these precious people are.”

Betty, Volunteer, Strathcona Care Alzheimer’s Unit

“My faith has grown as I see the women accepting Jesus into their hearts and I witness lives being changed. God has blessed me through the relationships I have made and the love He has given me for these precious women.”

Nonie, Volunteer, Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Centre

Prison

We provide purposeful opportunities for Christ-followers to reach out to those in correctional and young offenders centres. Our trained leaders guide volunteers into life transformational encounters for everyone involved.
