Stonegate Ministry History
Stonegate Ministry was founded in 1991 by a group of clergy and committed Christians from the Sunnylea and Humber Bay area. They came together to develop a shared vision and to play an active role in the Stonegate area in order to meet the physical, social and spiritual needs evidenced in the community. This partnership of local churches of different denominations has continued since the inception of the Ministry. The core clientele for Stonegate Ministry’s work are two communities-in-need, located in the southeast of Etobicoke:
- Approximately 8,000 families who live in the 79 low-rise apartment buildings in the Berry Rd.- Stonegate neighbourhood, and
- The 2,500 lower-income families living in rental units along Lake Shore Blvd. West in Etobicoke.

The work of Stonegate Ministry is faithfully supported by individuals and partner and national churches. We are united in the vision of expanding God’s Kingdom by working together to build a stronger, kinder and more just community. The Ministry is now a registered charity and services the community from our temporary location at Christ Church St. James Anglican Church (194 Park Lawn Rd.) in south Etobicoke.
