2018 Interfaith Works Project Kick Off!

It was a great day to kick off the seventh annual Interfaith Works Project! We had a great time of inspiring messages and a shared meal that was absolutely delicious! Here are photos from the event:

It was a wonderful time of celebration as Habitat Edmonton and the Capital Region Interfaith Housing Initiative wrapped up the sixth annual Interfaith Works Project! Since February, members of many different faith groups volunteered at various Habitat build sites in Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan — there were over 220 participants this year! The capital region is truly blessed to have a very generous faith community.

The Hymning Birdays
Sherwood Park Alliance Church
Millwoods Assembly
Strathcona Baptist Church
Ellerslie Road Baptist Church
Joyce’s Interfaith Group
Budapest Interfaith Group
Unitarian Church of Edmonton
Holyrood Mennonite Church
Church of Scientology

Islamic Family & Social Services Assoc
The Friendshop Force of Edmonton

Special thanks to the Sikh community who provided lunch and Evangel Pentecostal who gave us a place to eat because it was too muddy on site to bring people in!
