DESCRIPTION

Volunteers need to feel they are part of a community, not just of a drop-in centre.

It is a place to learn the importance of ‘wasting time’ with each other, of being human, of laughter and celebration.

We encourage volunteers to feel part of our community, and to participate also in the times of celebration. Most celebrations are done at tea-time. Care is taken to ensure birthdays, leave-takings, and every other personal milestone are remembered and celebrated at tea-time.

To celebrate people is also a way to learn to be present to one another; it is a good way to build a sense of community that is large and inclusive.” (from The Rule of The Mission)

We try to accomodate peoples schedules to the best of our ability.
