Love Your Neighbour as Yourself
Throughout the Greater Toronto Area, we have neighbours from all nations. Our multicultural city is a mission field in which we share the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed.
Who is My Neighbour?
As you ask yourself this question, you can show the love of Jesus simply by befriending and praying for those who live on your block or in your apartment building.
And you will likely discover ‘neighbours’ in all kinds of places as God opens your eyes to the needs of others.
For ideas and encouragement, you can join our Facebook community of ‘good neighbours’ who are seeking to be mission-minded in their daily lives and relationships.
Welcoming newcomers to Canada by connecting immigrants, refugees and international students to resources and relationships that help them settle in and feel at home. Click here to learn more about the ministry!

- Defending human dignity by providing compassion, rescue and rehabilitation through Christian ministries to those who have suffered due to slavery or trafficking.

• Adam House (430 Gladstone Avenue)
Every first Friday of the month
• Matthew House (981 Dundas St. W)
Every third Friday of the month
Join the refugee ministry team and hear the stories of refugee claimants as they seek to find a new home and new hope in Canada. If interested, please contact Pastor Nestor Abdon.
