Blog #399: The Ministry of the Pregnancy Care Centre

In our weekly church website blogs, we are in the midst of promoting and explaining those missions and ministry groups that we support in our yearly financial budget, as well as with prayer. We have already looked in these blogs at Cornerstone Counselling, Restored Ministries, the Mustard Seed. Today, Adeara Recovery Centre, and, this week we will look at the Pregnancy Care Centre. This agency is a Christian, faith-based ministry that has impacted so many people through their centers located in both Edmonton and Barrhead. The following information is taken from their website: https://www.pregnancycarecentre.ca/

“Are you pregnant and needing support? You are not alone. We understand. We’re here to help. The Pregnancy Care Centre (PCC) is here to provide support for you as you make decisions surrounding your unexpected pregnancy. The Pregnancy Care Centre is your best resource for unexpected pregnancy care. You don’t have to face this alone—you can count on us to help you find the answers and support you need. We are your companion through pregnancy, parenting and post-abortion care. With us, you’re never alone. Only you can make life-changing decisions for yourself, but you don’t have to make them alone. We understand that this is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. You may feel like everyone around you will have an opinion about what your decision should be. Parenting? Abortion? Adoption? How will you decide? Almost everyone who uses our services says their first feeling about the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy is fear. We want you to know that this fear is normal. If you have overwhelming feelings of despair and hopelessness, those are normal too. You might feel like your life is going to change forever and you have no idea what to do. We’re here to help! We’ll meet you with warmth and care in a judgment-free atmosphere. Our trained advocates will listen to your story and we will provide information on abortion, adoption and parenting. We want to know you and what you care about so you can make the choice that’s right for you.

  • We do not provide or assist in arranging abortions or abortifacients.
  • All pregnancy tests should be confirmed by a doctor.
  • The centre is not a medical facility.

Our trained client advocates can assist you to navigate through this time in your life. We offer support and compassion and provide a safe and caring space. We strive to uphold your integrity and to empower you to make the best decision for yourself. Our services are free and confidential. Your pregnancy may be unintentional – but your next steps don’t have to be. We offer accurate information about pregnancy and all pregnancy options.’

All of their services are free and confidential. When an unexpected pregnancy occurs there are three options that the Pregnancy Care Centre works through with their client. Abortion is not one of the recommended options but for those women impacted by past abortions, the Pregnancy Care Centre is there to help. Their website reads, “We’re committed to helping you navigate your circumstances and providing resources that will equip you. We understand you are in a difficult place. Give us a call—we care about you and we want to help.”

As a church family, we at Southgate Baptist Church are pleased to be able to support the ministry of the Pregnancy Care Centre, and we continue to pray God’s blessings upon it.
