We care about what’s happening beyond our walls. In our Ministry Plan, we’ve committed ourselves to “taking the dance outside,” which means that we’re listening to people in the neighbourhood to find out what’s really important to them, what’s going on in their lives, and to discover how we can participate in what God’s doing outside our church building. Many of our members are active volunteers for such organizations like the CNIB, Amnesty International, and various food banks. Through our Outreach Committee, we also provide support for:
The Flemingdon Park Ministry
Caring for the social, emotional and spiritual needs of one of Toronto’s most densely-populated multicultural communities. First conceived in the late 1950’s as an “Apartment City,” poverty and food security have long been major social justice concerns, with approximately 34 per cent of residents living below the poverty line. The neighborhood’s also a major settlement hub for new Canadians – more than 70 per cent of the residents are immigrants, many of them recently arrived. This presents a number of challenges, but also a tremendous opportunity for new growth and cultural understanding.
The All Saints Community Centre
committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment while enhancing the well-being of homeless and street-involved individuals from a harm-reduction and human-rights based approach. All Saints provides friendship, social opportunities, space for group and individual creative expression, case management, counselling, advocacy, and sanctuary, provided with respect, compassion, and without prejudice to all who seek them.
Providing a wilderness experience for economically disadvantaged kids
who’d otherwise never be able to attend summer camp. Located on beautiful Kawagama Lake in Haliburton, Camp Moorelands gives kids positive and fun experiences to help strengthen their confidence, competence and character.
