Outreach has been an important element of St. Timothy’s Anglican Church since its founding in North Toronto almost 90 years ago. Members of the congregation have many opportunities to share their faith beyond Sunday Services. We reach out to support the homeless and needy in our outreach programs. We support programs to assist refugees. We work towards truth and reconciliation in accordance with the 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
By way of background, St. Timothy's is a diverse and tolerant Anglican congregation, eager to welcome all who come through our doors.
We love to explore different modes of worship and styles of music, and get a bit put out when things fall into monotonous patterns. With our young families, we are beginning to break out of the 'Sunday trap' and explore worshipping on different days and in different ways.
We are passionate about our church. To many of us, St. Timothy’s is much more than just the place we go for an hour or so on Sunday morning. It is the community in which we live, move and have our being. We eat dinners in each other’s homes. We read books together and discuss their merits. Every year 80-100 of us attend a “Breakaway” weekend retreat.
We yearn to connect in meaningful ways with our neighbours. We understand the future of St. Timothy’s depends on this, but we also know that sharing the love we have found during our time here is Jesus’ call to us.
Our vision for St. Tim’s isn’t founded on the numbers at our Sunday service or the sparkle of our building. Rather, it reflects our deep desire to be of service to our community - to our neighbours – in a myriad of ways.
