Food Hampers

Next Date: February 24, 2019

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.

Second Saturday, Every Two Months

Next Date: March 9 at 2:00 PM

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.

On Wednesday nights in the month of August, we serve at BBQ dinner to the homeless and the hungry in downtown Oshawa (located just off Simcoe Street South at the back of the Gate 3:16 building). 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.

VBS Backpack Program

Backpacks & School Supplies (VBS Bus)

M&M's (Mercy Ministries)

A home cooked meal to help get you through

We've all been there. You or your loved one winds up in the hospital and things get hectic! One of the first things to suffer is a healthy diet, yet it's in these times of crisis that a home cooked meal can offer just the right mix of strength, courage and hope to get us through! If you know of someone who is expecting a baby, scheduled for surgery or is too ill to prepare meals, please let us know so that our M&M's team can support them with mercy and kindness in the kitchen. If you would like to add your name to the volunteers who cook these meals, email us or call us at 905-434-2876.
