GATE 3:16 OUTREACH

Sunday afternoons at 3:00 PM (weekly)

We lead a service with worship, a message, prayer and then share a meal together on Sunday afternoons at Gate 3:16 in Oshawa. Gate 3:16 is "a drop-in centre [that] attracts people of all ages, cultures, and life situations. The Gate seeks to show God's love to a broken world by creating a Christian atmosphere of friendship and understanding"


Wednesday Nights at 6:30 (month of August)

We serve at BBQ dinner to the homeless and the hungry in downtown Oshawa. We also have hygiene items and care packages to give out, as well as beaded witnessing bracelets. If you have any hygiene/care items you wish to donate, please drop them off at the church.

Partnering with Feed the Need in Durham, we are able to provide a bag of groceries for families who attend the Bus Sunday service (come on the bus or drive in from south Oshawa) and appreciate the extra help. Each month families will receive either a bag of groceries (food hamper) or will receive a meal following the service.


Note: Food hampers are not given out on Bus Sundays when there is a meal provided. A gift card may be used as a substitute when needed.

We partner with Cornerstone (an outreach ministry of Church in the City) by providing a hot meal and a caring environment to our neighbours in need in the Regent Park area of downtown Toronto. We alternate serving the main meal (BBQ) and desserts (pies), and donations of food are always appreciated. We meet at Family Worship Centre at 2:00 PM to carpool to Toronto together. This is an incredible and eye-opening experience - if you would like to volunteer to serve, please contact us.
