Christmas Giving in Regina: There are many ways you can give to needy people in our city this Christmas. Here are a few of them.

  • Regina Christmas Wish List
    Organized by Glen Elm Church of Christ, this program has been running since 2008 in partnership with several organizations that work in Regina. The idea is simple. You go to their website, read stories of families who need help and what they need, choose a family, and buy gifts. Drop them off at the Glen Elm church by December 19, and they will be delivered to the family by the agency that sponsors them. Find out more here:
  • CJME Santas Anonymous – 51st year
    Donate new gifts for children in donation bins throughout the city. They will be wrapped by volunteers and delivered to families. Find out more at their website
  • Regina Food Bank Christmas Hampers
    Donate online at their website.
  • Regina Leader-Post Christmas Cheer Fund
    Donations go to help four organizations that shelter families in crisis. Donate online here.

Alpha is an 11-week course that creates a space, online or in person, where people are excited to bring their friends for a conversation about life, faith and Jesus. We have hosted Alpha sessions in our church in the past in English and Mandarin. Alpha Canada has many webinars designed to equip the church in Canada to lead through this unique season. Many of them are applicable outside of Alpha as well. You can find the webinars on their website.
