Foundation Principle

We are a community grounded in the call, “Love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our strength, and with all our mind, and our neighbour as ourselves.” Leviticus 19:18; Luke 10:27

Hospitality

The House of Peace, located in the heart of the city, welcomes and celebrates diversity. People from various ethnic and faith traditions, live at the House of Peace, do volunteer service, pray and reflect, attend developmental sessions and contribute financially. Volunteers ensure that the House of Peace is accessible to individuals and groups seven days a week.
