After months of searching, Agape Table has found a new home.

The organization which feeds hundreds of people every morning, will move from All Saints Anglican Church in West Broadway to The Wave on Furby Street over the next couple of months.

“All Saints has been an enthusiastic, compassionate, and accommodating landlord,” says Jim Steep, chair of the Agape Table Board. “They have extended our rental agreement a couple of times to accommodate our search. We are very grateful for our 30-year relationship with them.”

Steep says they now look forward to this new partnership with The Wave, which is located one kilometre from their current location.

"They have a lot to offer. Really, the sky is the limit with us working with them," said Steep.

The Wave is not technically located in West Broadway, but Steep expects most people to make the extra trek across Portage Avenue.

"We certainly supply a much-needed service to our guests. Even a year ago we were serving 250-275 people every morning. Now the numbers have even grown from there. One day last week we actually had over 500, so the need is there. It is unfortunate that there is such a need, but it is also fortunate that we are there to be able to provide that service for people," said Steep.

Steep says they are now calling on donors to help with upgrades in the new facility, as well as moving costs.

Duane Siemens is the pastor of The Wave Church and says that Agape Table just fits with what they were wanting to do.

"It was almost like going shopping," Siemens laughed. "You know you need a dress for the prom, but when you see it in the window, that's when you know it's the one."

The Wave Church is excited to offer their facility and share in Agape's resources to reach more people in the downtown area.

Agape Table is expected to be up and running in its new facility by the end of June.
