Welcome to Spirit Renewal Ministries

Spirit Renewal Ministries (SRM), founded in 2006 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. SRM is a non-denominational ministry serving communities of faith and individuals in Canada and abroad. Our home base is in Ontario, Canada and we have undertaken nineteen mission trips to the USA, CuraƧao, India, and East Africa. This is a church without a permanent "church building". Join us for our on-line worship service each week on Wednesday evenings at 18:00 EST. Join us for our weekly online Zoom Chat - soul care each Tuesday morning at 11:00 EST.  

Today, SRM, with partners, and volunteers, serves as the hands and feet of Christ by preaching, teaching, encouraging, feeding, comforting, counselling, and caring for thousands of people at home and abroad. We also counsel the bereaved, provide marriage services, pray for the sick, feed the hungry, offer respite from the cold, and encourage people to form communities of care in all we do. Join with us! Learn more about our ministries.

We Listen

The contemporary theologian Robert Jenson writes, "The world has lost it's story - not only the Jewish-Christian story, but all the other stories that fed off that story, such is the story of progress" The world may have "lost the stories", however we know that you, among countless others seek meaning and purpose in this complicated world. You seek meaningful relationships, and that peace may come into the world in a real and sustained way. We at SRM listen to your stories and we share the stories of faith that have transformed and strengthened people for thousands of years. We believe!
