MHP’s Mission

To seek ways to participate in the mission of Jesus Christ in the world & to involve the congregation in that mission through evangelism, outreach & social justice locally, nationally & globally.  To be an unconditionally safe and welcoming church family by meeting the needs of our community.

Opportunities to Serve

Evangel Hall
Evangel Hall helps to feed, clothe and find shelter for up to 200 homeless and socially isolated men and women every day. At different times of the year, we collect non-perishable food items and personal care and hygiene items for donation. We participate in providing and serving a dinner for the Evangel Hall community on a yearly basis.

Don’s Coffee Pot
Don’s Coffee Pot is an ongoing fundraiser in memory of Don Jennison (1927-2005), a Toronto supporter of social justice, retired school principal and beloved adherent of MHP. We sell fair trade organic coffee from Alternative Grounds to support important social justice projects.

At different times, the profits from the sale of this coffee have gone towards the The Stephen Lewis Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, and building and supporting a schoolhouse in Kenya through Free the Children (now called WE). Presently the profits are going to support Armagh House.

To place an order or for more information on Don’s Coffee Pot call the church at 416-766-4765, or e-mail us at office@morningsidehighpark.com

Freely Given
Begun in 2003, The Freely Given program looks for simple, free ways to contribute to our community and those in need.  We collect items which we then distribute to appropriate places.

We collect used eyeglasses for those who need them, used stamps for Effect: Hope and pop tabs to obtain a wheelchair for someone in need though Easter Seals.
