How We Serve
Part of what makes Redeemer a vibrant church is the generous volunteerism that powers it. Over time, people find themselves called—or just curious—to get more involved, either in our church itself or in some of the ways we try to serve our local community and the world.
We invite you to explore the different ways you can volunteer at Redeemer. A great place to start is simply talking to people during coffee time after the 10:30 service.

Care and Justice
Jesus lived a life of radical compassion, and sought to reveal God’s coming Kingdom by pushing back against the injustices of the world he lived in.
We believe he calls on us to do the same.
We are a “hands on” church that wants to contribute to our neighbourhood and beyond. Thanks to dedicated members, we have created and nurtured a number of active programs and we’re always interested to see what you'll want to do next.
The Common Table
The Common Table (our drop-in program) is designed to serve those in our neighbourhood who are struggling to find work and stable adequate housing, and related challenges. It is a safe place that offers some shelter, a warm meal and good company. The program brings together staff, volunteers and donors.
About the Program How you can help
In 2014, in the midst of a growing global refugee crisis, volunteers from the Redeemer organized a program to sponsor refugees hoping to make Toronto their home.

Contributing to Worship
There are many ways to contribute to Redeemer’s services, from greeting newcomers, reading scripture, and more. Additionally, dedicated volunteers are at the heart of our Kids @ Redeemer program, which runs throughout the school year during Sunday morning’s 10:30am service. If you feel called to take a deeper role in our worship services, please get in touch.

Our Pastoral Care team assists clergy in caring for those in our community in need of support and connection.
Ready to find your place?
We’d love to help you explore the options.
Our church and the work that we undertake relies on the financial generosity of its members, neighbours and supporters. We are called to continue that work and are continually grateful and humbled by the support you offer.
If you are feeling called to contribute financially, we invite you to learn more about ways you can help.
Leadership, boards and committees
Our church is governed by both our Board of Management and our Advisory Board, and at any time there are a number of standing committees providing leadership and oversight on various operations, programs and projects.
If the Redeemer has begun to feel like a church you could call home, and you’d like to contribute to its direction, please reach out to start a conversation.
