St. Paul's Advocacy Office

About

St Paul’s has a well known heritage building, a red(ish) wooden church, on the corner of Jervis and Pendrell.

Serving the communities of the West End and Yaletown since 1905, St Paul’s has been well known for its inclusion of, and advocacy for, those who contracted HIV+ during what was called ‘the AIDS crisis’ of the 1980s. It has also been at the forefront of removing barriers to the full inclusion of people of different gender identities and sexualities - we believe everyone has a place at the table.

The church has also developed a Prayer Labyrinth which is well used by many people, a good number of whom would describe themselves as spiritual.

Finally, St Paul’s set up and largely funds the Advocacy Office, which seeks to provide advice and advocacy services for those who need help navigating the housing, tax and welfare systems.
