We have had a few cafes running from our church foyer over the decades but the inspiration for our Community Cafe was a Canada Summer Jobs proposal. We were approved for funding and were able to run our cafe – Summer 2021 -with the help of summer hires. Since then we have continued cafe with volunteers. Our heart is to reach the community here at Dufferin and Bloor with needed hygiene items, clothing, no judgement, and especially the love of Christ. As Christians we believe it is up to us to meet people where they are at and offer the hope we have found in Jesus to others. Cafe is meant to be the tangible love of Christ.
