Community
St. George’s is connected to the larger community through relationships, past and present.

Members of the early community led the social movement in the city. One member in particular, Andrew Frederick Gault, founded the YMCA movement in Canada and funded the Theological College among many other important community minded initiatives. And, as as a Church community, St. George’s partnered with the Presbyterian community to found Tyndale St. George’s Community Centre. For over 90 years, the Centre has offered empowering, supportive programs and services to our neighbouring community of Little Burgundy in South-West Montreal. Our church still supports this valuable ministry with financial and volunteer resources.

Today St. George’s continues that tradition of faith in action through it’s community outreach program and attracts people from both downtown and from across the greater Montréal area as well as visitors to the city. St. Jude’s Church, the Church of the Advent chose to join St. George’s when their churches were closed.

Today, we reach out to the community through two key programs:

  • The Drop-In Centre. The Centre serves homeless guests daily providing food, shelter and compassion as well as access to other resources.
  • Civitasx. We are founding members, with PEACE Initiatives Canada, a Muslim-led non-profit. We are committed to breaking down barriers by building understanding and friendship while working on projects that matter. Our focal project in the past two years has been Meals to the Street.

We provide access to space and resources for mission aligned organizations, including:
