Programs for our Community
The OASIS in Kanata
Helping caregivers build capacity, confidence, and resilience
The Oasis in Kanata is committed to providing support for all caregivers of people who suffer with symptoms of mental illness, and strives to do this from cradle to grave.
Mental health problems can generally be defined as stemming from a combination of individual genetic pre-dispositions (Nature) and environmental stressors (Nurture). With this in mind, The Oasis in Kanata works to provide support for caregivers through providing information, education, and support.
For help or more information please go to theoasiskanata.ca .
Healing Pathway Team
During this challenging time of physical distancing and staying at home for most people, the Healing Pathway Team is continuing its ministry of healing and prayer within the church and community. Every Monday morning, we gather via Zoom technology to check-in with one another, share a guided meditation and do a simple self-care practice. We also send healing prayers out to those who are not able to be present and to the world by intention.
We are inviting anyone who would like to join us in these Zoom meetings on Mondays at 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. to experience Healing Pathway in a new way. If you wish to receive an individual Zoom invitation to join the meeting, please contact Joy Judd at firstname.lastname@example.org by Sundays at 8:00 p.m.
If you have any questions, or have someone whom you would like to have included in our healing prayers, please contact our Coordinator, Nancy Kerr at email@example.com.
We are also very pleased to share an amazing Spiritual Care Package from the First United Church Healing Pathway Group. Resources include prayers and meditations, reflections and poems. It is for the community in this time of physical distancing and much uncertainty. We may not be able to meet face-to-face, but we can connect heart-to-heart. The connection is the link below.

Thank You from Rev. Elaine and the Pastoral Care Team
We acknowledge and thank all those who are currently working tirelessly and selflessly to keep us safe during the Covid-19 pandemic. We especially thank health care workers who put themselves in harms way to care for those who need medical attention, in hospitals and in the wider community. We are all comforted knowing medical care is available should we require it. There are so many others who are still working in essential services, that we wish to acknowledge and thank as well. We think of and thank your families who wait for you to come home, as they shelter in place. As we live through these uncertain times, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, and we ask that God bless each and every one of you.
