Reaching out to our neighbours
The congregation at TUMC budgets for specific Toronto-based organizations to provide support on an ongoing basis.
- Lazarus Rising (at Sanctuary) – ministry to homeless people
- Toronto Area Mennonites – working together with GTA churches
- Ten Thousand Villages – fair-trade shops that provide income to artisans in the developing world
- St. Clair O’Connor Community – intergenerational residence and nursing home
- Aurora House – transitional housing/programming for victims of human trafficking.
- Toronto Mennonite Festival – annual sale to raise money for Mennonite Central Committee
Members and adherents at TUMC are involved individually with many other initiatives and from time to time provide the congregation with information, prayer requests and a chance to participate.
