Heritage Green Family Church in Stoney Creek, Ontario (a Renewing Ministry grant recipient) is following God’s call on their church to “work and pray for the city around us” (Jeremiah 29:7) by responding to a need in their neighbourhood to build a stronger sense of community.

The church partnered with local growers and vendors to create The Heritage Green Farmers Market – a separate, non-profit organization, initiated and hosted by the church but run by the community. The response from the neighbourhood has been overwhelming!

The market runs every Thursday from 3 – 7 p.m., June to October. It offers not only great food and great products but an opportunity to connect with neighbours and build relationships.

It’s an opportunity for moms to receive programming for their little ones, while feeling supported and encouraged themselves.

Thank you Heritage Green for making such a positive impact!
