We are glad that you found us online and we hope you will look around. The Ahadi community is a Fresh Expressions Ministry of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto with a mission to reach East African Canadians and friends in the Greater Toronto Area by Word and by Action. ‘Ahadi’ is a Swahili word that means ‘promise’. The ministry seeks to respond to Jesus’ call of the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20, trusting that he will journey with them just as he promised his disciples. We are an African expression of worship with key elements of dancing, testimony, and the participation of children. We seek answer the question, “Where do your children go for prayer?” and believe this is an unsatisfied need in the wider East African communityin the Greater Toronto Area that Ahadi speaks and ministers to.
Most of our members came to Canada as immigrants on ‘points’. We are refugees, imigrants with resources and job seekers. We are at various levels in our careers. We are individuals and we are families. We come from all over Ontario including Toronto, Brampton, Mississauga, Waterloo, Pickering, Milton and New Market. We have origins in East Africa and beyond. Although we use English and Swahili, we speak many other African and non-African languages.
