The committee oversees the sell-being of the congregation by being a "care-giving set of eyes and ears" that connects the community of Eden as a support network, and informs the minister when their presence is required. The Committee is involved in visitations (i.e. hospitals, senior residence, shut-ins, and elderly). Communion can be provided to the shut-ins. The Pastoral Care Committee communicates and connects with families by sending out cards for all occasions, and by making phone calls to members of the congregation.
The Pastoral Care Committee acts as liaison and provided coverage in the minister's absence for pastoral care emergencies, with a follow up to the on call minister's absence for pastoral care emergencies, with a follow up to the on call minister, if necessary. They have provided pastoral support to the wider community when a family has called the church. As well, the Committee provides drives for follow up medical appointments after surgery and for to seniors requiring transportation to and from church.
If you require pastoral care and it is after church office hours, please call the church office at 905-824-5580 and listen to the voice message. If you require pastoral care during church office hours, please call 905-824-5580 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Eden Food For Change
Eden Food for Change is a non-denominational, charitable organization, working to eliminate hunger in western Mississauga.
Our Vision is Good Food For All
We provide our Food Bank members with a mix of non-perishable and fresh food to help provide them with access to a healthy, balanced diet. In addition, they can participate in cooking courses to gain nutritional education and cooking skills so they can prepare healthy meals at home, even on a limited budget. In addition, we provide everyone with access to affordable fruits and vegetables through our Fresh Produce Box program.

“Did you know…"
.....every twenty pounds of food donated to the food bank means that one more hungry person in our community is going to get the food support they need to get them through the month. However, when you donate $10 to Eden Food for Change we can purchase, through our food connections and by buying in bulk, up to $100 worth of food to hungry families in our community. More importantly though, financial donations allow us the ability to purchase items such as milk, eggs, fruits and vegetables to make sure our members can access fresh, healthy food. Food donations can be dropped off in the food bank bin in the church foyer. Financial donations can be dropped off at the church office.
