The focus of our mission as TrueCity is how our congregations can contribute meaningfully to the neighbourhoods that God has placed us in.
Two of our annual collaborative events that help churches connect to their neighbourhoods are Start2Finish Backpacks and our Christmas Hampers.
Start2Finish Backpacks: August 2017
At the start of each school year our congregations partner with Start2Finish to raise funds for, pack, and distribute backpacks to students in need through the Hamilton school boards. This event has given our churches the opportunity to establish and deepen relationships with local schools in their neighbourhoods. We will begin to organize for this event in May.
If your congregation is interested, contact Paul Havercroft at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christmas Hampers: December 2017
TrueCity congregations distribute boxes of food each Christmas. By doing this collaboratively, we learn from one another’s experience and better utilize the mix of gifts and resources our different churches have. This past year eleven churches worked together to distribute over 500 hampers.
We will begin organizing for Christmas 2015 in September, if your congregation is interested, contact Dave Witt at email@example.com.
