Reaching out to our neighbours has always been an important part of our life, and that continues in many different ways. In a spirit of faith-filled gratitude, we share what God provides so that everyone has enough, and strive to pass on our faith in Jesus Christ to others.
A weekly Community Supper at 5:00pm on Thursdays at Weston Presbyterian Church. All are welcome to eat and to serve together. This isn’t just about making sure that people get fed, but about seeing a community of support and faith gather around tables together to eat and be nurtured in Christ.
Our part of town has been identified as a “priority neighbourhood” by the city. One of the ways we are collaborating with our neighbours to improve life here is in the area of food access. We’re starting small this year by supporting our local foodbank and tending to a reinvigorated community garden.
There are so many great organizations working towards the good of the neighbourhood, and we want to partner with and encourage this work as much as possible. So far we have collaborated with groups like UrbanArts, which runs various programming for youth, and the Mount Dennis Community Association, which puts on great community events throughout the year like Party by the Pond.
We contribute to FaithWorks, the Anglican Diocese of Toronto’s ongoing appeal for those in need. Since 1996 FaithWorks has provided more than $24 million to not-for-profit groups offering help and hope to those in need not only in the Greater Toronto Area but throughout Canada’s far north and around the world.
