The Anglican Diocese of Niagara is a community of people who are Called to Life and Compelled to Love.
Ignited by the irresistible love of Jesus and renewed by the Holy Spirit, we partner with God to deepen faith, share stories and care for God’s world. We do this in many creative and faithful ways through the transformational ministries of more than 80 parishes that are deeply rooted throughout the diocese, which includes the cities of Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, and Guelph, the regions of Niagara and Halton, as well as Wellington, Haldimand and Dufferin counties.
Our ministry changes lives by engaging in the communities we serve, meeting real and tangible needs.
As a diocese, we do this through the ministry of our parishes, all of which have a passion and deep commitment to serving people in their church and the communities they are located in. Our ministries connect with tens of thousands of people each year; people who are hungry, people who are seeking meaning, people who are mourning, people who need refuge, and many, many more.
A 2019 report reveals that our congregations make a substantial social-economic impact, to the tune of approximately $114.5 million towards the local economy. That is incredible and honouring to know that together we are impacting our communities in a big way.
In all things, we are called to life and compelled to love, and a prayerfully considered gift – a gift of faith – to the Anglican Diocese of Niagara or your local parish – or both – will allow us to continue to live into this mission. Your gift offers care and compassion that will transform lives in our communities and beyond.
How your gift will be used
Legacy gifts make a way for your parish and our diocese to be the face and hands of Christ.
Your generous gift ensures we provide a community of faith that is responsive to the needs around us – be those physical, mental, environmental, or spiritual. Your planned gift is directed by you to ensure the ministries you care deeply for will be strengthened and supported. You may direct your gift to enliven a ministry engaged in works of justice, faith formation activities, or community care initiatives. Or you may choose to use your gift to support your parish’s area of greatest need, ensuring there are resources to continue our commitments well into the future. However you direct your gift, it will provide new tomorrows for our community of faith.
Thank you for stewarding a gift that grows out of your faith and the abundance given you by God.
