Welcome to Canada

Newcomers Network

We are happy to provide information
and resources to help you settle in!

Newcomers to Canada

Welcome! We are blessed by a diversity of nationalities represented in our church, so there is a very good chance you will meet others here who share your cultural heritage. Our desire is to greet you with:

Compassion: We are here to offer care and support. We understand that leaving your home country and arriving in Canada is an exciting transition—but it can be a difficult one too.

Connection: We can help you connect to practical resources you need to begin your new life here.

Community: We would be pleased to introduce you to the opportunity for friendship with other internationals and Canadians who are part of our community.

ESL Bible Study
EVERY SUNDAY, UNTIL DECEMBER 19 • 2:30 – 4:00 PM • IN-PERSON (ANNEX) & ONLINE (ZOOM)

Our ESL Bible Study is designed for those who are learning English. We look to grow the faith of newcomers while teaching them about the Bible in an easy to understand ESL format. We love welcoming people, hoping they find a place of belonging and as they are challenged to grow in their faith.

The focus of this ESL Bible Study is the story of Jesus: who He is as recorded in the gospel of Mark. Why did He come? Who knew about it? and what happened? It is our hope that this brief glimpse of the Saviour will awaken a desire in you to learn more about the Prince of Peace.
