The Fort Rouge Child Care, housed in our building, began as an after school program of our congregation. Now their own organization, the Fort Rouge Child Care serves up to 54 children, ages 2 to 12. We do maintain a supportive relationship with the day care through volunteers who read to the children and spend time in one on one conversation with the children. For more info, call the day care directly at 204.284.5474 or check FRCC’s website at https://www.fortrougechildcare.com/ .
AA meets at our place on Monday evenings
1 Just City is the umbrella group of five United Church ministries serving communities in struggle – many of our folks volunteer at these sites, putting love into action and seeking a more just society. Curious? http://1justcity.ca/
The Village Green Morris Men claim to be the oldest Cotswold side in Western Canada. They were founded in 1974 at the same time as the Village Green English Country Dancers by the late John Trevenen and the late David Williams. John was a student at Pinewoods in the early 1970’s, and later taught there. The Village Green Morris Men are still going strong, surviving personnel changes and various kits. Their present kit is white peasant shirts, black knee breeches, white socks, green and yellow baldricks with rosettes, and straw hats with green ribbons. And, of course, bells.
In addition, the Robin Dow School of Dance uses our building to offer tap classes once a week.
We are proud to be home to two of Winnipeg’s fine choirs, The Winnipeg Boys’ Choir and ECCO.

And then there are the beyond-category concerts such as Zabathon, Joko Tea, Urban Vacation, The Viewing Party, The Inflatable Band, The Physics and Mashed Topatos to name a few.
