Eirana Support Services

We are helping members of the Reformed churches in the Fraser Valley assist each other in times of mental, spiritual and emotional trials. We offer Christian resources to those in our community who need information about life difficulties such as mental health issues, grief, addictions, and problems in relationships and family life.

We also aim to offer and support initiatives in our churches where members of the churches see a need and try to fill it, for example speeches about mental illness, workshops about learning basic counselling, parenting groups, support groups, etc. If you see a particular need, have an idea or see a gap in the knowledge or information in your church regarding issues such as these, we can support you to implement it.

Operating as usual
