Church in Regent Park
Our church originally began in 1995 to serve the people of Toronto’s downtown core; it was then known as Cornerstone Urban Church, a partner church of Church in the City. Cornerstone began a dinner to feed the hungry and offer a place to belong in a safe community. Today Cornerstone Dinners feed about 400 people weekly, almost entirely with volunteers. As Regent Park continues to be revitalized, we saw the desire of many to have a church to call their own.
Church in Regent Park has been deemed an essential service and the Community Impact Grant will help us to continue to serve a weekly take-home meal to 300 guests and deliver clothing, groceries and other supplies to the vulnerable who are unable to leave their homes.
