The Chinese Anglican Ministry welcomes Chinese newcomers and immigrants. With the Anglican churches of St. Aidan’s, St. Cuthbert’s, St. Luke’s, and St. Simon’s, the ministry builds belonging and inclusion by facilitating various programs and ministries.
The Anglican Diocese of Niagara is grateful to be able to support this ministry under the leadership of the Reverend Weiliang (Garfield) Wu.
To faciliate our ministry, we have developed an app for iOS that showcases the events and supports available for newcomers and immigrants. You can find a link to the app here.
We aim to provide a central place for the newcomers to find and explore events and services that are available in Oakville-Trafalgar Area.
We aim to connect the communities of the various congregations of the Chinese community that meet in the different churches with resources and a central hub that makes finding resources easy.
We want to provide a space where you can find information on the services available in each Church allowing you to connect with other members in the community who are Chinese Speaking or ask questions and chat with to assist them as they find a new home in the Oakville-Trafalgar area.
We are part of the Anglican Church in the Diocese of Niagara. We will help you find a church that has a Chinese Ministry where you can practice your English or a service that is in your native language.
English Coffee is a social program designed to welcome Chinese newcomers and immigrants, especially those who are not confident in English, and support their integration into the local culture. Through a variety of events, cultural workshops, English conversation groups, English choir groups, and an all-English volunteer group, this ministry builds bridges that cultivate relationships between Chinese newcomers and immigrants and their neighbours.
Specifically, the program encourages people to practice their English, learn about Canada and Canada’s multi-culturalism, and introduce Chinese newcomers and immigrants to church members who welcome them into parish life and the community.
