East End Refugee Committee:
St. John’s has, since 1995, combined some of its outreach effort with several other nearby faith communities to sponsor refugees. So far twelve family groups, ranging from one to six members, have been sponsored. The refugee coordinating committee is responsible for helping them settle into new lives in Toronto and supporting them financially for the first year.

St. John’s and its members are involved in assisting such programs as Out of the Cold. Help is also offered through the church office during the year to people in need, particularly at Christmas time.
