As Unionville Alliance Church reaches out to disenfranchised, hurting people, God is pleased and says “when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!”
Master’s Pantry - Providing Food, clothing and small household items
We have two pantries meeting individually usually on the first and third Saturdays of each month from 9am – 11am. There are approx. 40 volunteers who make this exciting ministry happen for 100+ families in the Markham/Unionville/Richmond Hill/Scarborough areas. Many people, who come to the Master’s Pantry, come on the recommendation of a York Region government agency. Annually in November, Master’s Pantry begins its Christmas “Hampers of Hope” campaign which concludes mid-December. Approximately 200 hampers containing everything for a wonderful Christmas dinner and gifts for each member of the family, are delivered. There are plenty of opportunities for YOU to help in this wonderful outpouring of God’s great love! Simply email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Unionville Alliance is a church that is concerned for York Region’s poor
Community Care Fund – provides financial assistance to individuals in need; supports the Master’s Pantry; and, contributes to the Crisis Pregnancy Centre. Your donations to the Community Care Fund go a long way in providing help, hope and a future for many people.
Toronto Alliance Church - Five times a year we take a team from UAC, downtown to TAC, to assist Pastors Bill Dyck and Andrew Hubbard prepare and serve dinner to those who are in need. Typically we go the last Saturday of January, March, May, September and November. The congregation signs up to bring sandwiches, chili, to pray for us, or to go. In the past we have also asked for donations, and with that money, we buy TTC tokens. The leadership at TAC gives those tokens to people as they assess the need. We have also taken fresh fruit on occasion.
On arrival, we set up to be ready to serve dinner to the members of Toronto Alliance Church and anyone else who attends the evening that are street involved. Our team from UAC is directly involved by serving the food and drinks to over 100 people. TAC has tables set up, and occasionally an overflow room, that we serve. Some of our team work in the clothing room, non-perishable food room, or as dish washers and busboys. After the meal the TAC staff have a worship time and preach then we clean up, vacuum and set up for the next day’s church service. Contact Cheryl Roe or Denise Sweetman for more information.
