Presbyterian sharing

Taken from the Presbyterian Church of Canada Website- Presbyterian Sharing is the national church fund that supports the missions and ministries we do together in Canada and around the world.  Presbyterians are sharing in a wide range of ministries from encouraging and equipping congregational renewal and development, to supporting inner city, native, refugee, urban, remote and chaplaincy ministries in Canada, to sending mission personnel to work with International Partners.  For more information on Presbyterian Sharing, visit their website at www.presbyterian.ca/sharing/

presbyterian world service & development

This excerpt is taken from the PWS&D website- Presbyterian World Service & Development is the development and relief agency of The Presbyterian Church in Canada.  For over 65 years, our church has been actively working to serve marginalized and vulnerable people through Presbyterian World Service & Development.  While the global context has evolved since PWS&D was first formed, what has not changed is a commitment to Christ's message of love through justice, poverty reduction and support in times of disasters.  For more information on the work of PWS&D, please visit their website at www.presbyterian.ca/pwsd/

CANADIAN FOODGRAINS BANK

From the website of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank- we work toward this goal by- providing food in times of crisis for hungry people in the developing world; helping people grow more food to better feed themselves and their families; and providing nutritional support to malnourished people with a focus on pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and young children.  We also advocate for that enable families and communities to better feed themselves, and look for ways for Canadians to talk about global hunger.  In 2015-16, we helped over one million people in 40 countries.   Check out their website at www.foodgrainsbank.ca/
