Dublin Street United is hosting the first of its Brighter Life Workshops on September 16, 2015 at 7 pm in our sanctuary. This two-hour presentation is an introduction to the issue of suicide. Topics will include stigma, risk-factors and protective factors, early warning signs, what you can do to help, grief and how to access professional resources. An open question period will be included at the end of the talk. The speaker for the evening is Angela Heeley from Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). Please come and learn more on how we can help another.
10:30am Service - We have a Sunday program for children during the summer, excepting long weekends, beginning June 14. There are bible stories and themed crafts. Everyone is welcome to stay for refreshments after the service. We look forward to seeing you!
Dublin Street United is preparing to welcome a United Nations designated refugee family on June 24. They are a husband, wife and two young sons. We are hard at work making advance preparations. Regardless, when refugees escape their homeland, they still miss it profoundly said the support committee's chairperson Gary Partlow. "It's our job to sort out their day-to-day living issues and help them find a comfortable way of life. We're their sponsors for one year, but we stay friends for much longer."
