Church Relations Initiatives

Looking to start a new initiative in your neighbourhood? Learn how we can partner with you.

Transforming Communities Grant

We love nothing more than to support churches in what they do. That’s why we provide grants to local churches that are engaging their neighbours, expanding outreach programming, and bringing transformation to their communities.


Is your church curious about repurposing an underused part of your facility? Investigating how your property could be used for social housing? Or hoping to become a hub for community gardens? We’d love to explore possibilities with you.

Neighbourhood Scan

Looking to discover your community’s unique strengths and challenges? We would love to walk alongside you in doing a demographic analysis of your neighbourhood, including historical trends on what has made your community what it is today. A large component of this work is missional engagement: looking and listening for God within your local context.


For encouragement and instruction, we offer 45-minute tours of our building in Vancouver at 601 East Hastings Street. By sharing the life-changing services and programming UGM offers, we hope to inspire your community in your own outreach initiatives!
