The Church

Worship Service is held each Tuesday morning from 11:15 to 1:00 in the Youth Centre of Rexdale Al.liance Church. Messages are presented in clear to understand language, intentionally avoiding Christian jargon. Messages focus on practical, daily application of the Bible to meet the needs of our culture and society. Teachings focus on how Jesus can help you in a practical and realistic way with your daily needs and problems.

Fun with Fabric

The purpose of the Fun with Fabrics has two-fold function of Outreach. While caring for others by creating items for charity, te women are also growing in love for Christ and scripture and caring for each other's spiritual needs. The items that are created are made from fabric scraps which also helps the environment. Come join this amazing ministry every Tuesday from 9 to 1 9.m. We journey with them on a daily basis and seek to develop true meaningful relationships.

Network

We are a group of partners who provide services to the community of Rexdale. We partner with local organizations who facilitate referrals and provide resources and support and help residents in need.

About Us

Neighbourhood Connections is a food bank that operates within the larger body of Rexdale Alliance Church.  We meet on Tuesdays providing some singing, hot lunch, a short talk and a food basket.  Please refer to our program schedule below to see what the full program provides.

In addition to providing lunch and food baskets, Neighbourhood Connections offers haircutting, dental bus, and used clothing.

During covid these services are temporarily suspended, and moving forward Neighbourhood Connections is trying to gradually introduce these services back into our program.  Currently we are only offering the food baskets weekly, with a light social every other week (coffee, tea and snacks).

Neighbourhood Connections brings the Gospel to people in an easily understood format that also speaks into an individual's life as to how the Bible can have a practical use in everyday life. 

We also hope that our messages will enable people to speak to others about the Gospel by clarifying some commonly asked questions. We feel that the Bible is very relevant to today's problems and is the way to peace and healing. 

Everybody is welcome to attend our church and share in the love of Jesus Christ. It is through Jesus’ love and teaching that we can make a true impact on an individual’s life, our local community and finally the world. We welcome you to come worship and grow with us in person.
