Byron United Syrian Families Update:

 After three months of filling in application forms, contacting United Church and Canadian Government officials  and waiting we finally received a telephone call from official Canadian sources on February 1st that one our families would be arriving on February 3rd and another telephone call on February 3rd that the other family would be arriving on February 5th. Both families arrived on time, safe, happy and exhausted.

The Alkhatib family arrived on February 3rd and are staying at their brother-in -law's house until February 13th when our Team will be able to move them into their apartment.

The Odicho family arrived on February 5th. Our Team was able to move them into their townhouse on February 6th.

Both families are incredibly grateful to everyone who has helped them to come to Canada. As one of the family members mentioned 'it still seems like a dream'. The English words 'thank you and happy' are the two words most used in any conversation with the families.

Our Team still has a lot to do. The focus now is on the 'settlement issues' of getting the families to feel included in London and Canadian society.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers and support. Please continue to pray for a smooth transition for our families. Take care!

  • Sunday School Update

    January 07, 2016

    As a New Year is upon us, what a better time to bring together two incredible Ministries !  Children’s Ministry and Music Ministry have launched Sunday School through the Arts. Children in Grades 1-6 can learn and explore Bible stories in a new and exciting format. Every Sunday students will explore a new lesson by attending a different workshop each week. In every workshop, your child will open the Bible and dig into the story in lively, age-appropriate ways. Rotating Workshops include: Art, Skills and Games, Cooking, Creative Drama, Crafts, Music, and Dance. For more information email Liam Maharaj, Director of Christian Education, at
