  • Seeds of Hope –  To build self-sustaining communities that create the conditions to enable individuals at a crossroads in their lives to develop their livelihood, learning, and creative potential through engagement with each other in learning activities, social enterprises, and community endeavours.
  • Scott Mission  Scott Mission is a Christian, non-denominational, faith-based street mission in downtown Toronto, serving the poor and needy of our city, offering support and provisions for the homeless, low-income families, and children and youth.

Bolivian Partnership


For our most recent update from Blythwood's Bolivia Partners in Mission, Bill and Janice Dyck, please go to their 'Cautiously Optimistic Newsletter'  Click Here 


Blythwood is a partner with churches of Bolivian Baptist Union to support and encourage their work. This partnership began in 2006. 

Blythwood's specific partnership is with the Association of Baptist Churches in the Chapare region. Our first mission trip was completed in the spring of 2008. Eleven members of the Blythwood family worked on various ministry projects including children's ministry and the renovation of a former clinic so that it can be used as a ministry training centre. In August 2017, ten from Blythwood and Weston Park Baptist went to Bolivia. This was our third mission trip to Bolivia, visiting Cochabamba and Aquile. It was great to see the Chagas project and Casa de la Amistad up close and spend time with the missionaries our church supports.




Horizons For Youth


Horizons for Youth is a 35-bed emergency shelter dedicated to helping homeless and at-risk youth between the ages of 16-24 years. They provide emergency accommodations, including three meals/day, Individualized Case Management, Housing Support, Community Support, Aftercare and Day Program, and Career Horizons pre-employment program. Their services are made possible through community partnerships and support.


Their Residential Program ensures the basic needs of each youth are met by providing them with a bed to sleep in, three meals per day, clothing, personal hygiene products and services, and access to the internet, computer, and television.


BRBC Community has been volunteering at Horizons for Youth since December 2011.



Out Of The Cold


For 26 years, from the beginning of November until the end of March, Blythwood provided a safe place for the homeless and those in need.  Hot meals and clothing were offered with open arms, compassion, and fellowship every Saturday night and Sunday morning. As of March 2020, Blythwood and the other Out of the Cold sites throughout Toronto closed their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We pray that our former Out of the Cold guests are safe and have found refuge in the various shelters located in the Toronto Area. 


Although we can no longer safely open our doors, we need to continue reaching out to those currently living in city shelters, encampments, and on the streets. Blythwood's Out of the Cold provides financial support to a select group of charities that work with the homeless in desperate need. We have also partnered with several other Out of the Cold programs financially to serve hot meals at downtown shelters and the encampments. A small group of Blythwood volunteers is helping out by distributing hot meals, clothing, and basic necessities.  


We wish to thank our volunteers from many churches, organizations and walks of life.  We, at Blythwood, simply couldn’t have run the program without the help of others.  In addition, we thank the staff from Dixon Hall, a social services agency, who provided us with security and educational support.  We will continue to be forever grateful for the help and involvement of all who have a heart for those in need in our city.


We would like to thank our very kind and generous donors who have continued to support the Out of the Cold program over all these years.


Since Out of the Cold cannot operate safely within the church during the COVID-19 crisis, we have given one-time grants to agencies supporting front-line programs aiding homeless individuals and people at high risk of homelessness without intervention and /or people experiencing food insecurity issues.

The following are the agencies:

Horizons For Youth, St. Luke's United Church, Youth Unlimited, The Yonge Street Mission, Sanctuary Ministries of Toronto, Seeds of Hope, and City Street Outreach. Financial support has also been designated to support hot meals delivered to the front lines for the All Saints Community Centre and the Encampments Network during the Christmas holidays and Seeds of Hope from January to the end of April. 




Pregnancy Care Centre   

The Pregnancy Care Centre (PCC) was established in 1984 as a Christian non-profit, non-political, charitable organization to offer valuable community support. We are funded solely by donations from individuals, businesses, and churches. 

PCC was founded so that no woman in the greater Toronto area need feel that abortion is her only alternative when faced with a crisis pregnancy, and exists as a caring Christian community committed to the value of human life from conception, the PCC seeks to share the love and truth of Jesus Christ by offering practical, emotional and spiritual help to those facing issues related to a crisis pregnancy; Sharing the goals and values of the PCC, and as of this year, 2021, Blythwood Road Baptist Church will assist and work alongside the PCC in ministering to those women facing a crisis pregnancy. For more information please go to https://pccfriends.ca/
