Moving forward in faith What happens when you give: We have a story to tell about what God is doing among us!

Our mission is to partner with God to transform the world by offering help, hope, and healing in the name of Jesus.

Worshipping Together

Because of your gifts, we have the opportunity to worship together in a space where we feel love and peace. We preach grace, love and forgiveness. Our services are creative, dynamic and uplifting.

We laugh with those who laugh, and mourn with those who mourn at spiritually significant moments in their lives. When someone from the Erindale family dies, we are grateful to God when we have the opportunity to celebrate their life through a time of worship. This year in worship we had the joy of baptizing three little ones, and welcoming four new people into the Erindale family.

People have found strength and comfort in our worship gatherings as we learn, share the gospel, sing, and pray together.

 

Spiritual Learning

Because of your financial gifts, there are many opportunities to grow in faith at Erindale. We grow in our knowledge of Christ and we experience God in many ways as he begins to form his character in us.

Tuesday morning Bible Fellowship meets weekly in the morning, and ELF meets one Monday each month in the afternoon. Our Minister, Rev. Jen, leads seasonal Bible Studies. We have a number of Jr. High youth, who meet outside of Sunday morning worship.

Each Sunday our Children’s Church gathers to learn the stories of our faith. They are led by Paola and Sophie, who pray with them, encourage them, and help them to grow in faith. Because of your gifts we have been able to focus on our children’s ministry, and God has blessed this faithfulness in abundance. We have many children who come to learn and grow in faith together.

 

Community Caring

“Erindale is a family. One that accepts each other as we are. One that loves and cares for each other. One where we gladly use our God given gifts wherever they are needed.”

– A quote from a member

As we live in authentic community with others, Christ uses our relationships to change us and mature our faith.

Your gifts provide the opportunity for our Minister to visit those who are hurting or in hospital. They also allow us to send cards and flowers, meals, and other forms of care to those who are suffering.

Your gifts also enable us to respond to needs within our community, special projects that arise, and they support our Mission Possible Kids ministry that is a hands on community outreach ministry.

Your minister frequently receives calls from community members in crisis, and because of your gifts we are often able to respond in practical ways.

We feed the hungry through active involvement with our local Food Bank, The Deacon’s Cupboard, providing ongoing support through donations of non-perishable food.

 

Mission

Whether it is down the street or across the ocean, we are making a tangible and significant difference for the Kingdom of Christ in the world. We have been called to extend the love, grace and hope of Jesus to a lost and dying world, and we understand that it starts right where we find ourselves.

Because of your gifts our Minister is able to be a part of The Erindale Village Association, allowing us to better understand our neighbourhood and its needs.

Through World Vision we sponsor Rima, a young girl living in Bangledesh.

Your generosity has provided our faith family with the opportunity to begin the process of sponsoring an Iranian refugee family living in Iraq.

Our new sign is up and it is a beacon to our community that God is doing a new thing among us. This sign is a result of your faith in what God has planned for Erindale.

We support with your gifts, the work of the larger church through Presbyterians Sharing and Presbyterian World Service & Development.

 

When you give

When you give to Erindale Church, you are not simply giving to a BUDGET – but rather in your giving, you are investing in people’s hearts and lives in the name of Jesus.

  • You enable Erindale to reach out in hands on ways
  • You provide a space for us to gather for worship and grow as a family.
  • You allow us the opportunity to care for one another, offering ministry programs that help us to grow physically, emotionally and spiritually
  • When you give – you help to care for the beautiful physical space in which we meet – the church building – so that we have a physical space TO invest in people’s lives.

 

How is Erindale Financially Supported?

Wholly by the gifts you and the rest of the congregation give.

The Erindale Leadership is constantly & prayerfully discerning the future of our congregation. Therefore, your gifts are handled with care and received with deep thanks to God.

Please make your commitment today to support the work that God is doing through us for the sake of love.

Our spending reflects our values as we worship, serve, care and share together!

Thank you!
