Neighborhood Social Ministry

Service Opportunities at West End Collegiate Church

Since 1981, West End has proudly offered the following two Outreach Programs for our congregation and our neighbors to serve and to be served. Please call Pastor Jes at 212-787-1566 or email her at jkast@westendchurch.org if you have any questions about these two programs. We offer a lot of flexibility in our volunteer program.  No experience is required to participate.

Tuesday Soup Kitchen

The Soup Kitchen provides hot meals beginning at 4:30 until 5:30 p.m. to our hungry friends and neighbors every Tuesday with no questions asked. (Church begins at 4 PM) Soup Kitchen is on hiatus for the summer.  We will resume meals on September 13.
 

Wholeness Center

We open our doors each Sunday at 1:00 p.m. to welcome our family and friends who are mentally and emotionally healing. The program begins with an informal coffee hour, followed by a voluntary Bible Study, and a meal. Wholeness Center was created to be a weekend supplement to weekday outpatient programs, and our members come to us by referral only. Volunteers from the neighborhood, from our congregation, and from other church families serve as hosts, cooks, and servers. 

The Gorsuch Fund

A new opportunity for service:  Grants are available for service projects undertaken by members of the West End Collegiate Church congregation through The Gorsuch Fund.
