The Board of the diocesan Anglican Church Women are thankful to the many people who've worked diligently over the years to help the diocesan ACW thrive in God's service. With the smart initiatives of those before us, and the sale of the W.A. Memorial House in Vancouver, we have the means to flourish for generations to come. Sadly, we've hit a snag. Our currently leased warehouse in Burnaby will have a significant increase in rent at the end of the lease on May 31.  The board executives are concerned that the Bales to the North and other outreach we support will be jeopardized with continued expense increases over the coming years. We need to find a new home in a church that welcomes our commitment to God's service.

Our warehouse is 1750 square feet. It provides us with a boardroom, warehouse area with a washer/dryer hookup, washroom and small kitchen area. We can downsize to a smaller area, no less than 1000 sq. ft. We are prepared to pay between $38,000 to $42,000 yearly, depending on the space. Ideally we'd like to relocate to an area that is accessible to the majority of our members such as south Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, North Delta or Surrey. If you believe your parish could have room for us, please contact Kelly Bowman with information at:  We appreciate your consideration to our request and ask for you prayers that we find a good home to continue our work for many more generations of Anglican Church Women.
