KAIROS unites churches and religious organization in a faithful ecumenical response to the call to “do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God” Micah 6:8. We deliberate on issues of common concern, advocate for social change and join with people of faith and goodwill in action for social transformation.
Canadian Foodgrains Bank: Sydenham has supported this program for several years now under the direction of the Outreach Commission. It provides funds to local farmers to grow grain or corn which is donated to the Food Grains Bank to help feed the World’s hungry.
The Outreach Commission during different months of the year hold congregational competitions (i.e. right side vs. left side), and the winner is the Food Bank, but the competition spurs us on to give more .
As we are unable to offer the Sunday Suppers during this time of church closures we have been asked to enhance the meal program at Why Not Ministries for teens. We have committed to provide bag lunch suppers on
Saturday, April 4th, Saturday, April 11th and Sunday, April 12th (Easter)
We would like to have fresh fruit to put in each bag and are looking for donations from the congregation – e.g. bananas, oranges, clementines that have to be peeled before eating . If you can contribute for any of the above dates please tell the church Office or Rev. Bill . THANK YOU!
The Sunday Supper Club currently has five provider groups taking turns planning, setting up, preparing, serving and cleaning up in order to provide a nutritious meal to our guests every Sunday from November 1 to April 30 every year.
These groups are sponsored by various faith traditions within the community to provide the clients with a wide variety of meals. These meals are also listed in the City of Brantford food calendar.
Grant money is received from the City of Brantford but donations are the backbone of this project. Personal and corporate donations are received as are food donations from the Food Bank and other donors who provide fresh produce on occasion. However, our most important donations come from our volunteers who share their time and talents to make this program a success.
