Biographical history

This ministry was originally known as Stella Mission. In 1971, Winnipeg Presbytery established P.A.C.T. (People Acting on Concerns Together). P.A.C.T. provided a ministry service for special needs and was not a ministry with an established congregation. The needs were met by giving direct service to the community through organization of recreational and educational programs, including the building of a better neighbourhood and community with members from the community. P.A.C.T. functioned until 1978 when the North End Community Ministry (NECM) adopted their goals.
