How one Toronto church is beating the odds

Facing closure and financial ruin, the Toronto Roncesvalles United Church found a new source of income: their own physical space. The church began renting or donating rooms for flea markets, yoga classes, shiatsu, children's theater, and more. The church says that they are "redefining how [they] do God," and that their mission is about serving the people in the community rather than remaining exclusively secular. As a result, the church topped $200,000 for the first time in its history in 2019.
