Giving & Serving

Serving in Toronto

You can participate in God’s global mission right here in Toronto.

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.

Newcomers Network

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!

Newcomers Fellowship Volunteers

Sundays • 1:30 – 3:00 PM • 320 Maplehurst Drive

We are looking for volunteers to help with activities including shopping for food, preparing food, leading worship songs and leading Bible studies! If you are interested, please contact us.

Newcomers Fellowship Bible Study Teachers

Sundays • 1:30 PM • 320 Maplehurst Drive

We are in need of ESL teachers to lead our Bible studies each Sunday. We are looking for teachers who have some form of ESL experience. The purpose of this role is to help newcomers to Canada understand concepts of God’s Word. The teaching schedules are flexible, so please contact us for more information.

Career Mentors

Many newcomers come from significant professional backgrounds and experiences. Yet due to their lack of experience and academic training in Canada, many are not able to find meaningful employment opportunities in their professional field. If you are in a specific profession, we would like to connect you with a newcomer who is in the same field. In becoming a mentor, you will have the opportunity to provide practical employment support and build meaningful relationships with newcomers. If you are interested, please contact us.

Ministry Partners

The Peoples Church serves in partnership with various ministry organizations active in the Greater Toronto Area to address these mission initiatives:

  • Advancing gospel frontiers by supporting evangelism, Bible studies, church planting and community development among people groups who have not yet had the opportunity to hear or experience the gospel.
  • Defending human dignity by providing compassion, rescue and rehabilitation through Christian ministries to those who have suffered due to slavery or trafficking.
  • Developing healthy communities by delivering food, medical care and education through Christian ministries to women and children in vulnerable situations due to poverty.

For more information, please contact us.

Refugee Ministry

Refugees have left their homes and countries to escape persecution and oppression. We want them to feel God’s loving presence as they seek a life of dignity and peace. 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 us.

Do you have a passion for helping refugees feel at home in Canada? We are in need of a volunteer to help with leading activities at Matthew House every third Friday of each month. Activities would include interactive games, icebreakers, sharing
stories and enjoying meals together. This is a great opportunity to build relationships with refugees and fellow volunteers who are spreading the love of Christ through hospitality. Matthew House is located in Downtown Toronto, at 981 Dundas

Pregnancy Care Centre Volunteers

Help women in crisis pregnancies by becoming a LifeBoat facilitator for the Pregnancy Care Centre. The LifeBoat program teaches parenting, goal-setting and budgeting skills through an established curriculum that is easy to facilitate. This is a great opportunity for us to invite these women into our church family. Training happens in North York. Facilitators can serve on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly or on-call basis. If you know of anyone who may be interested in this opportunity, please have them contact Jaimie Lintag.
