Meadowlands offers support for individuals and families in emergency need situations. One way support may be given is through the Deacon Fund. During a crisis, this fund may be used to provide for basic needs like food, shelter, and clothing. It is intended as a source of last resort when all other means of help from family, friends, or savings have been explored. The funds are for any person in need, both in the church and in the community. This fund is administered by the Deacons and guided by the Benevolence Policy and Procedures of MFCRC. In addition, Meadowlands supports Ancaster Community Services, which offers emergency support and case management for those in need. For emergency food services close to you, consult the Hamilton Food Access Guide.
Sunday Morning Prayer: During each Sunday morning service, our church has a time of prayer together for community needs. If you would like to request prayer for a specific situation, please fill in this form:
We also offer a time of personal prayer in our church, both before and after the service.
Feeling lost or lonely? If you would like to have someone to talk to over coffee, we would be happy to reach out and connect with you. We have space to chat while socially distanced, and can connect over video chat as well.
Pastorates are smaller groups that meet regularly for fellowship. During COVID, these groups meet online, or socially distanced in the family's back yards. For more information about pastorates:
NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS ON PAUSE FDURING THE PANDEMIC: If you would like to join us on Sunday mornings at 10AM, but are unable to get to church, there are a number of volunteers who are willing to pick up and drop off individuals to our church.

Safety is very important to us at Meadowlands. Volunteer drivers have passed a valid police check, have clean driving records and will arrive with an accompanying volunteer passenger.
