Giving & Serving

Serving Around the World

You can participate in God’s global mission when you give, pray and go.

Global Ministry Partners

Through your giving and serving, you help make it possible for The Peoples Church to serve in partnership with 46 mission agencies and 221 missionaries in 38 countries around the world.

Our partnerships address our three Global Initiatives, which are specific areas of mission we believe God desires us to focus on as a church.

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 Christian ministries of advocacy, relief, and recovery to those who are affected by violence, corruption, oppression, or persecution.

Developing Vibrant Communities by delivering food, medical care and education through Christian ministries to women and children in vulnerable situations due to poverty.

Give, Pray and Go

As God’s mission extends around the world, there are three ways we participate in it together: We give, we pray, and we go—all for the sake of sharing the gospel, so that peoples of every nation would become disciples of Jesus Christ.

How You Can Give

When you give financial contributions through The Peoples Church, you enable a great variety of local and international ministries to show and tell the good news of the Gospel. Whether it’s by helping someone in need through a benevolent offering, giving to support one of our Global Initiatives, or providing funds to sustain our church ministry and facility improvements—your giving helps us stand together in God’s global mission. Learn more about ways to give.

How You Can Pray

We are The Peoples Church because we embrace all the peoples of the world. One way that we are messengers of the Gospel is in partnership with missionaries based in our multicultural city of Toronto and globally. The work they do is life-changing as they shed light and hope in a world full of darkness. They need us to hold the ropes for them in prayer. Pick up mission cards located in the East main hallway, the café and Global Mission Department. Learn more about what our missionaries are doing all across the globe, and stand with them in prayer. There are blank “I Pray…” paper made available in the same locations, on which you may write your prayers for the missionaries. Make sure to indicate their names and drop your written prayers into the slots in the mission card holder.

In addition to time spent in personal prayer, we invite you to participate in prayer gatherings in which we give thanks to God and seek His continuing guidance and provision.

You can follow along on Facebook and Twitter, and use each post as a reminder to pray for our ministry and mission.

How You Can Go

Every year, we send mission teams from our congregation to serve in various countries around the world. Perhaps God is calling you to go in person—or perhaps to go in spirit, through your support of team members.

Peoples Fair Trade Market

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27 • AFTER EACH SERVICE • GYM

Our fair trade market is back this fall, featuring artisans with goods from all around the world! From coffee and chocolate, to clothing and jewellery, every purchase you make has an impact.

Check out our vendor list below for details.

Why Fair Trade?

When businesses operate with profit as their sole objective, workers are exploited, the environment is polluted, and our natural resources are depleted.

In contrast, social enterprises use business practices to create positive change in the world. They contribute to sustainable development through innovations in healthcare, renewable energy, micro-finance and much more.

Social enterprises empower communities and create fair employment opportunities for the world’s poorest and most marginalized groups.
