Mission at Fallingbrook

The people of Fallingbrook are committed to giving and to serving others in the name of Christ.

What's New? 
Three energetic sewers have answered the call that Michael Garron Hospital (formerly East York General) is accepting cloth masks to provide to visitors to the hospital. Over 150 cloth masks were donated. In addition, masks were sold to members of the congregation with the proceeds donated to local food banks.

 
Annual Mission Project

Each year the Mission Committee leads the congregation in an Annual Mission Project to support of a worthy cause either in Canada, or overseas.

During 2018 the project involved the work of Presbyterian World Service and Development (PWS&D) in Afghanistan, concentrating on educational opportunities for girls.

The 2019 project raised $3855 in support of Boarding Homes Ministry. Although we titled our fundraising efforts "the underwear fund", the money will be used at the discretion of the executive director to enhance the lives of people whom they visit in rooming houses in Toronto, including buying new underwear as needed. Thanks to all who donated so generously.

Annual Christmas Project

Each year Fallingbrook helps to restock the supply of kits (relief, school, sewing, hygiene) which are distributed by The Mennonite Central Committee. These kits go to disaster areas all around the world throughout the year. Bags and instructions of what to include are available at the start of Advent. Completed kits may be brought in and put under the tree in the weeks leading up to Christmas.


Food Drive
For the past 25 years the first Saturday in December has brought a special annual project to Fallingbrook. Once again this year, the local food drive for the Birchcliff Bluffs Food Bank will be manned by an enthusiastic group from our congregation. We knock on doors in the immediate vicinity of the church and are rewarded with a generous response of Christmas food donations. The food bank staff is always appreciative of our efforts and it is also a great opportunity to keep our church profile very healthy in the neighbourhood.

Too many people were involved to mention everyone, but it is important to recognize Cathy Farintosh for her enthusiasm and efforts in organizing and leading the troops…thank you Cathy!

Many families will enjoy the Christmas season a little more because of the generosity of the community and the efforts of our church...well done to everyone involved!




Presbyterian World Service & Develop-ment
PWS&D is an agency of the Presbyterian Church in Canada that supports projects around the world in partnership with other Christian organizations. These projects alleviate suffering and lead to self-sufficiency. To link to their website, click here.

Fallingbrook supports PWS&D through weekly collections in a "Mission Jar", and through Anniversary Mission Projects. In the past these have included digging wells in Africa.
