Partnerships

IMG_0030Part of something bigger

TUMC is part of a regional body called Mennonite Church Eastern Canada, as well as the national Mennonite Church Canada.  We are partners in our building with the Toronto Mennonite New Life Church (Iglesia Menonita Nueva Vida), a Spanish-speaking congregation, and the Mennonite New Life Centre of Toronto, which does innovative refugee and immigrant resettlement work. A church-owned home has been renovated to offer transitional housing to victims of human trafficking through the Aurora House ministry. We also relate to a worldwide organization called Mennonite World Conference, which includes approximately 2.1 million baptized members of Anabaptist churches worldwide.  (Photo: the 2015 Mennonite World Conference assembly in Harrisburg, Pa.)
