London Community Chaplaincy


London Community Chaplaincy (LCC) is the result of the unification between the Southdale Chaplaincy and the Limberlost Chaplaincy in June of 2013. This unification has brought together the strengths of both founding organizations, offering new programs and services at each site.

The Limberlost Chaplaincy has worked in the London-Middlesex Housing Complex at Limberlost Rd and Gainsborough Rd since 1982. Ever since, various chaplains and volunteers provided its residents with resources, programs, and a Christian presence in the community.

The Southdale Chaplaincy has worked in the London-Middlesex Housing Complex at Southdale Road East and Millbank Road since 1991. Over the years several programs and services have been offered to the community in response to its needs and the available resources to meet those needs.

Currently, the Chaplaincy provides counselling and crisis support; advocacy with London and Middlesex Housing Corporation and other agencies and authorities with whom residents must deal; provide resources and links to other social support agencies; after school and summer programs for children 5-12 yrs old; varied adult programming (see website for more details); emergency laundry facilities; emergency health care vouchers; bus tickets, food vouchers, diapers and baby food as donations support; children's summer camp sponsorships; community Christmas dinner; Christmas hamper program; fax and copy availability; computer lab with Internet for job search and homework; English as a Second Language supports; and ongoing program development, including workshops and seasonal activities for both children and adults.
