Evangelical Fellowship of Canada
 
We support this organization as a strategic witness at the national level. Special resources of the Fellowship address key social issues and matters of public policy at Parliamentary and Supreme Court Committees. The bi-monthly publication “Faith Today” reviews activities across the nation relating to conflict between Christian beliefs and Canadian public policy. It has become a powerful voice for evangelical Christians in Ottawa with input to new legislation and makes submissions to the Supreme Court of Canada on issues affecting faith communities. We became a Congregation Affiliate Member in 2002 and continue to lend support to this national ministry. Bruce Clemenger, the National Director EFC, was our guest speaker at the Good Friday Services at Saint Andrews 6 April 2012.
