A COMMUNITY OF WELCOME
At Tenth Church, we recognize that the refugee crisis locally and globally is far from over, and we believe that God is calling us to continue caring for the foreigner in our midst.
Since 2016 we have partnered with Journey Home Community to welcome two families a year seeking asylum in Canada. This includes offering English lessons, assistance with transportation, practical supports, settlement support, navigating steps to employment, rental assistance and, most importantly, friendship.
Along with Killarney Park MB Church, Tenth has committed to walking alongside newly arrived refugee families, providing them with a stable living situation in a transitional home while they process paperwork, connect with our community and prepare to live a sustainable life in Canada.
The core of our refugee ministry stems from the relationships built at our twice-monthly community dinners, held on the second and fourth Tuesdays at Killarney Park MB Church. We believe that the greatest need for those who have experienced trauma, fear, disruption and loss is to build long-term friendships characterized by stability and trust. Sharing meals together in community is a key contributor to this outcome.
By welcoming refugees, you will be welcomed in return! Volunteers experience the joy of learning about different cultures, tasting amazing food and shaping our city to be uniquely diverse. It only takes a willingness to open your heart and home and share your life with others.
