The Refugee Highway Partnership is a network of Christians, churches and organizations who have found common cause in the call of Jesus to “welcome the stranger” and extend hospitality to those in need.
The Roundtable is where we gather - the table is Round because we’re in this together and need one another’s voices. It’s a place of inspiration, learning, sharing, and equipping. It is a space where diverse ministries, services, and individuals find one another in order to bring about action that would please the heart of Jesus, as He sees us welcoming the stranger in our midst and showing the mercy that He first offered us.
This year's theme is "PLACE" looking into thoughts from Exodus 33:21:
“Then the LORD said, "There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock.”
Location: The Peoples Church | 374 Sheppard Ave E | Toronto, ON
