St Monica's Anglican Church
The Poorest Anglican Church in Toronto.

It is what is called a storefront church in a poor neighbourhood around the Riverdale and Leslieville areas of Toronto. It has a maximum seating capacity of only 40 so will give you an idea of the size.

Here Dame Rev. Nola Crewe is developing a community of local people and the food bank is an essential part of the services the church provides.

And here is Nola with Bishop Yu

St Monica's is a unique Anglican Church: a storefront, devoted to serving those whom our society has disregarded and disenfranchised.

Here, all are welcome!
Here, we are committed to serve both the body and soul and the words of Jesus Christ "what you do to the least of my brothers and sisters you do to me".
Here, a food bank meets the needs of hunger.
Here the advocacy group addresses the slum landlords and politicians who ignore the human realities of deprivation.
Here the refugees find a home.
Here the mission of hospitality abounds: feeding, clothing, and housing.
Here, you are invited to join in the challenge of Christ . . . to love your God, your neighbour and yourself.

Church service on Sunday starts at 10.30 and so why not drop down one Sunday as you'd be most welcome.

Editors Note: The landlord doubled the rent and the Bishop said, "No Way" and eventually transferred us to the basement of St Johns (Norway), our Mother church. We still worship at 670 Woodbine Avenue at 10:30 on Sundays with a "Seeker Service" . . . . that is a casual service designed for people who are not cradle Anglicans but who enjoys the inclusiveness of the faith. All are welcome . . . and nothing I enjoy more than a debate with those who did not agree with my sermon!
