Outreach Ministry

The members of the Parish of Georgina believe that we are called by God to reach out into the world.

This is a very important part of who we are and what we do.

When a need arises the members step forward to do whatever is needed.

Additional outreach during the COVID-19 spring lockdown was provided to River Glen Haven staff, Georgina Community Food Pantry, Sandgate Shelter for Women, Faithworks and the Families made homeless due to the townhouse fire on May 26th in Sutton.

In 2020 we raised $915 for the World of Gifts project with which we purchased:

AMCC COVID-19 extension - keep a clinic safe for a month

From 2016-2020, PWRDF’s All Mothers and Children Count program worked with partners to empower women and girls through improved health and food security in Tanzania, Rwanda, Mozambique and Burundi. The program came to a close as COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. In June 2020, the government granted PWRDF a one-year extension to support these partners through the COVID-19 crisis by providing medical grade Personal Protective Equipment, hand washing facilities and sanitizer for community members coming in to the clinics, and education tools to prevent spread of COVID-19.

Five chickens

$30.00

In Colombia, PWRDF partner ILSA empowers women to be sustainable through microfinance and organic farming. With new COVID-19 safety measures in place, rural women will learn about farming and how to keep chickens. As quick producers of protein-rich eggs and meat, chickens improve nutrition, food security and income.

Your gift of $30 supplies a group of women with five young chickens.

Pandemic relief in Indigenous Canada

$50.00

As part of its strategic plan to promote reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples, PWRDF is pleased to receive donations on behalf of the Anglican Church of Canada’s Indigenous Ministries.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

St George's Open Doors in the summer the church is open to visitors from morning to sunset.

Prayer is one of the main functions of our parish. We endeavor to live as a family of God, in work and worship. At both churches, intercessory prayer is an important part of the service. Parishioners, local residents, and visitors are urged to bring their prayer requests to the Prayer Desk at St. Georges, the service prayers through the church office, or through the Prayer Chain.
