Serving others in the church, our city, and the world is one of the core practices of our rhythm of life and reflects how Jesus came to serve.

In The City

As a church in the heart of downtown Toronto, we want to make a tangible difference in the people’s lives here.

ESL Café

Do you enjoy meeting new people from different cultures? Are you interested in helping newcomers develop their English skills?  

St. Paul’s hosts ESL Café for students, workers, and immigrants from across the globe, where God has introduced many newcomers to our community and to the Christian faith.   

If you are interested in helping, please contact Ben Tshin.

Shelter Meals

Each week volunteers deliver about 225 individual meals to two meal programs in the area, The Common Table and Sanctuary Toronto. These meals are cooked by our Chef Omari and are funded through The Rev’s Kitchen.
If you would like to volunteer as a driver, contact Karen Isaacs.

Local & One-Off Needs

Internationally

Refugee Ministry

St. Paul’s is actively involved in refugee sponsorship to bring refugees to Canada in association with AURA. This valuable work takes the participation of the whole community through prayer and through the contribution of time, skills, and resources. If you would like to be involved, please contact Brenda Gibson.

St Paul’s has two active overseas partnerships at the moment.  

We support the work of Anders and Susan Carlen with Operation Mobilization as they seek to share the good news of Jesus in Sweden.

We also partner with the Anglican Diocese of Biharamul, Tanzania, in their outreach ministries, including education and food security for children in most need.
