Act Five is expanding its operations to include space for five to seven young adults to live year-round at the Act Five residence. The goal of the Act Five Residency Program is to provide a formative community living experience for young adults who are pursuing study or work in the city of Hamilton through shared participation in the Act Five learning community (meals, prayer, song, scripture, recreation, some program outings).
Who is this for?
Young adults (~20-30 years old) looking for a community in which to learn, practice and grow in their faith while engaging in their neighbourhood and city.
