The word ‘Praxis’ means the act of engaging, applying and exercising ideas. It means practice; as distinguished from theory. Praxis at Humbervale is a discipleship, accountability and Bible study group where members seek to live out the disciplines of our faith as they lead us into the practice of the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. In Praxis, we meet weekly in gender-specific small groups to exercise the edification of the Saints, the examination of the Scriptures, and the evangelization of the lost. The activities of the group will help us to practice intentional relationships with one another through confession, prayer, and loving accountability & encouragement.
Please see our list of courses for more informaiton.

Homeless Supply Bags
HPBC is working in community and the surrounding areas to help bring basic supplies to the homeless and people in need.
One of our initiatives has been to prepare supply bags that are handed out to homeless members of our community. Our team members carry the bags and personally distribute them to the people they meet.
During this time we talk and pray for those individuals so that they know they have not been forgotten. We also offer assistance to bring these people to shelters and other centres where they can receive further help.
The Gathering (Men’s Social Bible Study)
Here is a chance for men of the church to gather together and discuss trending topics and how we as men of God must navigate through a secular world in biblical fashion. Various topics relating to men’s role in family, work and social circles are discussed, thankfully with the God’s Word at the center and heart of the conversation. Meetings take place on the second Saturday of each month. Please see our events calendar for more information.

We provide used goods in a department store-like experience for value-conscious shoppers, who can find deals they can feel good about. Our stores convert donated goods into cash, and the net revenue is devoted to the joint ministry of BFM Foundation (Canada) and Bible League Canada to support leadership and literacy programs in over 43 countries — giving people access to the life-giving, life-changing, Word of God.
Staff and volunteers believe there is a deeper purpose to everything in life, including shopping. Our mission is to save you money, save the planet and tell the world about the saving work of Christ.
Regeneration Outreach Community started as a “living room for those without a living room,” a safe and caring space for the homeless and vulnerable. Centered around caring relationships, Regeneration sought to meet both the practical and spiritual needs of guests, even if that just meant a cup of coffee and a listening ear.
Regeneration had a number of homes before Grace United Church stepped up and a long-term lease was established. In 2011, the Regeneration offices officially opened.
Since then, Regeneration has seen tremendous growth, adding several new programs and services in order to meet the growing need in our community. What used to be a four-day breakfast program has multiplied into several life-giving programs offered each day, 365 days a year, so that struggling people can build hope for tomorrow.
One comment from a guest encompasses everything Regeneration strives to provide: “Thanks for the place to be.”
