COMMUNITY SUPPORT AND OUTREACH
ARMAGH, a home for abused women and their children
Our most recent work with Armagh was a project we titled "Saving for Suds" which raised money for a washing machine and dryer along with soap, towels, sheets, and laundry baskets. We also share in a long-term tradition of providing Pajamas and slippers at christmas time.
Cairn Family of Camps
Thank you so much for everyone's generosity in either providing baking or buying baking at the"Send a Kid to Camp Bake Sale" on April 17, 2016. The kids raised an amazing $484 which will be used to send kids in need to Cairn Family of Camps this coming summer.
Caring and Sharing
Caring and Sharing is a ministry where in we collect groceries each week for a household in need. Please contact the church office for more information.
The Deacon's Cupboard is an ecumenical outreach program located in St. Peter's Anglican. It offers practical, emotional and spiritual support to those in need. This includes food and personal care items offered on a voucher basis as well as clergy and nursing support.
This mission is supported by the following churches in the area: St. Peter's Anglican, St. Thomas a Becket Anglican, Erin Mills United, Erindale Presbyterian and Erindale United. The Deacon's Cupboard also does some of its own fundraising and receives donations from numerous schools, scout groups, the police, businesses and individuals in the community.
Erindale supports this outreach program by encouraging its members to bring in non-perishable goods each Sunday, provide donations throughout the year and by hosting various fundraising activities throughout the year. As well, a few of our members provide volunteer support.

Good Samaritan Fund
The Good Samaritan fund is used as a caring outreach to provide monetary assistance to persons in need, either within the congregation or part of our local community, and to help fund local groups that are seeking to perform community service to those in poverty and need.
Individuals are invited to give to this fund in an envelope labelled, "Good Samaritan Fund".
Links Across Borders
Each year Links Across Borders travels with a group of volunteers to Ghana in May. The group will help to complete a new library, design and coordinate activities for children and youth in two villages and run the Love to Read Campaign from May 6 - June 2. Sylvia Morrison, the founder of Links Across Borders, is hoping to give a solar lamp to each child who participates in the Love to Read Campaign this year.
Erindale supports this ministry through book donations along with financial donations to help provide solar-powered lamps for children. These lamps are useful for the child's household during in the weekly power outages. Lack of light in the home limits the child's opportunity to study, read, or do homework at night.
Presbyterians Sharing is the national church fund that supports the mission and ministries we do together in Canada and around the world. Presbyterians are sharing in a wide range of ministries from encouraging and equipping congregational renewal and development, to supporting inner city , native, refugee, urban, remote and chaplaincy ministries in Canada, to sending mission personnel to work with international partners.
Presbyterian World Service and Development
Presbyterian World Service & Development is the development and relief agency of The Presbyterian Church in Canada. For over 65 years, our church has been actively working to serve marginalized and vulnerable people through Presbyterian World Service & Development. While the global context has evolved since PWS&D was first formed, what has not changed is a commitment to Christ's message of love through justice, poverty reduction and support in times of disaster. Erindale supports the work of PWS&D through financial gifts, and in particular times of crisis and disaster.
Teen Education and Motherhood Program (T.E.A.M.)
Throughout the year we support the work and mission of TEAM through donations of diapers, toiletries, gift cards, and others items for young mothers and their babies. TEAM assists teen moms to finish their high school education.
CHURCH GROUPS AND ACTIVITIES
We have many opportunities to help you grow in faith here at Erindale. Whatever age and stage of your faith journey, you are welcome here and encouraged to share with us.
This small and growing enthusiastic group explores the Bible and welcomes anyone who is interested in joining them on a Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m. Each person has different experiences that they share and through this fellowship the group learns from each other's experiences while searching the Bible for guidance in their day to day living.
Our church and choir is very blessed to have the leadership of Ani Imastounian as our Music Minister and Choir Director. God has given Ani an amazing talent and we feel truly blessed that she shares it in worship. Choir practices Thursday nights at 7:30 p.m. and newcomers are always welcome to come out for a week or two or stay for longer! The group comes on Thursdays to practise, however, they always leave feeling more refreshed and energetic than when they came in. Come and let the music rejuvenate your spirit.
The Craft Group is growing! The laughter is growing. The conversation is growing. We are having a blast!
The Craft Group is an opportunity for people to get together in a stress free environment. There are no attendance requirements, no duties that must be done. There is just coming when you can, bringing a craft that you're working on if you want to, having a cup of tea or coffee and enjoying yourself.
We meet in the lobby of the church on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m....plus we enjoy a few extra meetings in the summer months! Please come out any time! This is a truly fun group, and the more the merrier.
Erindale Ladies Fellowship & Mission and Outreach Group
This wonderful group of ladies focus on mission and hospitality. As well, they help with refreshments and food for other activities such as our Christmas Gift program and our Work Bees. This group also gives the kitchen a "spring cleaning" once a year. In November they have a Craft and Bake Sale which is their main fundraiser which contributes to the life of the larger congregation. If anyone would like to join this group, you are very welcome. The group enjoys what they do and the satisfying feeling of a job well done. The work they do increases their feelings of fellowship and faith!
