Hope Toronto's annual Mercy Week is taking place on April 4-5 & 7! Be reminded of God's heart for the city, and come learn how we as a church can practically love, serve, and walk alongside our neighbours with great mercy and compassion. Meet us at 383 Jarvis St.


SESSION 1: MENTAL HEALTH: A DIALOGUE
APR 4: 7-9 PM
Jonathan Lee, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist, will speak with us about mental illness from a medical perspective and through the lens of the gospel. The secondary goal is to give this often stigmatized topic a safe space to be discussed so as a church we can bear one another's burdens with greater love and understanding.

SESSION 2: NEIGHBOURLY LOVE: ENGAGEMENT
APR 5: 7-9 PM
Rick Tobias, life-long anti-poverty advocate, will educate us on the systemic issues of poverty in our city. We will also be challenged and equipped as a church to think about how to be good neighbours in our new home.

SESSION 3: FAMILY LIFE: MERCY
APR 7: 10:30 AM-12 PM
Jen Michel, award-winning author and mother of five, will teach on the theology of mercy. She will discuss creative ways to foster neighbourly love into the daily rhythms of a busy family life. (Children's programming will be provided for school-age children. Children ages 1-3 will be supervised in the nursery room.)
