New Church

Our vision and dream
Our church is considered to be the only Arabic speaking Presbyterian Church in Quebec
The church was established in 1994 under the care of the Presbyterian Church in Canada and founded by 20 settlers who had moved to Montreal with the hope of spreading God’s word among our community. Since then God has put in our hearts the vision and  dream of having our own place of worship to be able to serve the Lord more effectively and bring hope and compassion among our community.
With the Lord blessings we saw our congregation grow year after year, and many families immigrated to Montreal to join our family in Christ.
The need of having our own place of worship became urgent and crucial to be able to serve the Lord accordingly to his will
With God’s infinite grace our dream came true, Glory be to the Lord

The church is located in Ville St-Laurent, and was brought to us by  the Presbytery of Montreal.
The building was assessed according to the market for approximately  two million dollars, if this building were to go on the market it would have been immediately purchased by a developer and possibly converted to a mosque or a commercial building.

We rapidly expressed our desire to purchase the church to the Presbytery and by God’s grace
it was approved, but the process wasn’t easy and we encountered many difficulties along the road, but God’s work in mysterious way’s and we felt the Lord hand in the process of acquisition.
It was nothing short of a miracle since we were able to acquire the ownership for one dollar, under the condition of renovating the building and keeping it as a church.

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. (Ephesians 3:20 )

Thanks to the Lord who heard our prayers
Our new place of worship has blessed us with many benefits and some challenges, and we trust that god will be walking with us side by side every step of the way.

Benefits
1- The building is located in the large city of Montreal which is home to a population of more than 20,000 of Arabic speaking persons, this will give us the opportunity to spread the word of god to be the light at the feet of every living soul seeking his grace.
2- The city of St- Laurent is located in the center of Montreal, so it will be close and accessible to everyone who wishes to be part of our family in Christ
3- The building is large enough to accommodate all of our activities of worship and ministries, since the Lord has blessed us with an annex on two levels with two large halls and many classrooms.

Challenges
The church building and the annex will need extensive renovations and repairs in the amount
of approximately half a million dollars
Unfortunately our congregation does not have the financial capacity to cover those expenses and to fulfill the whole amount needed

The situation now
The property act has been transferred to our name and we are grateful to Christ to have blessed us with such a gift from his hands
The church then nominated a special committee responsible for the repairs and renovations, after studying the project they decided to divide the work in three phases
First phase is the urgent repairs، Second phase:  needed repairs، Third phase: interior finishing

We believe that the Lord will fulfill all our needs, but we need your prayers and would really appreciate your support
If God has put on your heart to share our dream and to be part of our family in Christ in helping us to spread the word of God to all his children’s,
