2018 Dramatic Production
The Homeless Jesus
“no where to lay his head”
Each spring we produce a play featuring our clients and volunteers. In 2018 we presented an original production, “The Homeless Jesus.” Featuring acting, music and a charcoal sketch of the “Empty Tomb” by Marshall Custus, coordinator of The New School of Colour. Well received and seen by over 1000 people, we anticipate presenting it again next Easter.
Following is a photo of one of Marshall’s sketches.

Serving London Since 1984
The Ark Aid Street Mission was founded in 1984. Since then it has grown in its mandate to serve people who live on the margins of society. The Ark, as it is popularly known, is a charity registered with the Canada Revenue Agency, supported by a wide variety of local people, churches and businesses. The motivating factor of the Board, staff, volunteers and donors is to practically express Christian faith and love where they are needed most.
London’s latest initiative for food security. With funding from Healthy Kids Community Challenge and Child Youth Network (City of London) a new refrigerated van has been purchased for the London Food Coalition. The Coalition is a cooperative venture of some 30 agencies in London which operate food programs. The Ark Aid Street Mission will operate the van on behalf of the Coalition and the distribution hub will be operated at the Salvation Army’s Centre of Hope. Find out more about this unique venture here.
