Opportunities Committee

The Opportunities Committee connects the church with the wider community.

It focuses on the neighbourhoods of the parish (St James Town, Cabbagetown, the Village, and Rosedale) as well as our neighbours across the GTA and beyond. With a particular focus on social justice and community outreach, the Opportunities Committee allows any member of the parish to bring ideas for short to long-term projects and events so that the Committee may welcome, discern, and action new initiatives.

In 2019 our parish focused on addressing poverty in our neighbourhoods with a letter writing campaign during Lent and a clothing “free store” in May.

See the Opportunities Committee’s package on the Diocesan Social Justice Vestry Motion and how SPSS plans to respond to climate change in 2020 here.

In response to the worsening housing crisis during the pandemic, we are supporting the Diocesan Social Justice and Advocacy Committee’s letter writing campaign.
