The snow is here and we will be keeping our eyes on the road. If the Hanover buses are cancelled, mid-week ministries (mid-week meal & sr youth) are also cancelled. We will do our best to list any ministry cancellations on our Facebook page as well as the website home page.


Operation Christmas Child boxes should be back by now. Thank you to everyone who participated! If you forgot your box at home, check the schedule on the poster that’s posted at our front doors for times you can drop off your box at the collection centre in our portable.

Our Warming Centre is up and running every Thursday from noon to 2:00, providing a place for those in need of warmth and company to enjoy a hot bowl of soup and friendly conversation. We are accepting donations of non-perishable food items that can be handed out to those who attend. These items can be dropped off at the hutch in the foyer that is labelled HMC Pantry. Also needed are donations of bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo, as well as knitted goods. If you’d like to volunteer for this great ministry opportunity, whether it’s to hang out with our guests, to serve or clean up, or to make soup, please connect with Marcia Burt. There is a soup sign up at the Welcome Centre.

Hanover Heights is looking for donations of small hats, socks, and gloves/mittens that can be distributed to children who don’t have the necessary means to stay warm. These items can be dropped off at the pantry cupboard in the foyer.


Do you love to bake? If you’re interested in helping to provide desserts for our MIDWEEK MEAL, please connect with Pastor Kristina.

We are still looking for volunteers to fill a few gaps. If you’d be willing to serve on the usher team, or if hospitality is something near and dear to your heart, please talk with Pastor Kristina.

Are you interested in helping us fill our freezer? We’d love to have a selection of home cooked meals we can hand out as blessings. Please connect with Pastor Lyndsay if you can help.
