The Carlington Community Chaplaincy is a ministry of presence fostering a safe, supportive and empowering environment for everyone in our diverse community. We honour and value all people.

We provide a range of hospitality and arts-based programs for residents in Carlington, including a daily drop-in (Monday - Friday, 10 am - 12 pm), a studio space for artists, and special-interest classes and groups.


Volunteer Opportunities

Carlington Community Chaplaincy (CCC) has been helping, for over 25 years, people in the Carlington community area who live in social housing or are on low incomes. The community is very diverse. We foster a safe environment and we value all people.

Our Open Door Drop-In Centre is a hospitality program that runs Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to noon. This program is held at the Chaplaincy’s Main Space (Strong Hold Community Home) on 1465 Caldwell Ave, Unit 102. This drop-in program offers participants a healthy snack, coffee, tea and an opportunity to socialize.
