Hope House and Lakeside Downtown Doors Open Guelph


Hope House and Lakeside Downtown

Guelph’s oldest stone church – built in 1855 – became the Norfolk Street United Church when the United Church was formed in 1925. People worshipped here until it was sold to Lakeside Church in 2012. Today, Hope House operates out of this church, offering a food market, clothing bureau and café to help those in need in Guelph’s downtown core. Visit to watch, listen and learn more about Hope House and Lakeside Downtown (coming September 24).
