Outreach Beyond our Doors
We support the work of the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund. Information about this fund’s initiatives is available in the Under the Sun newsletter, which is on the bulletin board at the back of the church and at www.pwrdf.org.
Our Fair Trade program is part of our collective attempt to be good stewards of the earth and support growers in resource-poor countries. Orders are taken for Zatoun Palestinian olive oil upon request, and part of the proceeds support the lunch program at the church. A member of the Getting Connected team who wear blue name badges will be pleased to introduce you to a member of the Fair Trade team.
Toronto Urban Native Ministry (TUNM) is an ecumenical ministry dedicated to serving more than 70,000 First Nations people living in the Greater Toronto Area.
This multi-faceted ministry provides street outreach, pastoral counselling, weekly worship services, sacramental ministry, referrals to social services, visits for people in hospital, at home or in jail, and spiritual care for survivors of residential schools.
TUNM also offers education, cross-cultural dialogue and information sessions for non-aboriginal people and works with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, a national group established to hear and record the experiences of former students of Indian residential schools and to work towards reconciliation between aboriginal and non-aboriginal Canadians.
The Rev’d Canon Andrew Wesley, one of TUNM’s two full-time staff, is also an honorary assistant at the Church of the Redeemer and aboriginal priest for the Anglican diocese of Toronto.
Amnesty International and its members work to free prisoners of conscience, end violence against women, promote respect for the rights of Indigenous people – and more. As a non-partisan advocate for human rights, Amnesty and its research are respected worldwide. In Canada, 2,500 people regularly write letters in response to its urgent-action requests.
The Church of the Redeemer’s Amnesty Action Circle meets on the third Sunday of each month (except August and December) from 10:15 – 11 AM (before the 11:15 service) and 11 – 11:45 AM (after the 9:30 service) in the boardroom. We write letters, send postcards, sign petitions, and learn more about issues around the world.
Our group takes action on four inter-related topics: Indigenous rights here in Canada and in Colombia, human rights in Iran, corporate responsibility, and women’s rights.
