Disclaimer: Joe Elkerton resigned from Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship – BLF Church in November 2009 and is no longer employed by or involved with BLCF Church, BLCF Cafe (Bloor Lansdowne) Community Dinner or any of BLCF Church’s outreach ministries. And Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship – BLCF Church was never partnered with Project 417, UA – Urban Adventures, Ekklesia Inner City Ministries or any of its affiliates. Contrary to information still posted on several BLOG’s and Web Pages, Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship – BLCF Church and its Community Dinner is not now, nor never has been, partnered with Project 417, UA – Urban Adventures, Ekklesia Inner City Ministries or any of its affiliates.
On several occasions, a message sent by a representative of the Board of BLCF Church to the author/administrator of these various BLOGs and web pages with a request to remove or correct these inaccurate statements regarding Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship – BLCF Church having been partnered with Project 417, Urban Adventures (UA), et al and only once received a response, a sarcastic email reply questioning just who the Board of BLCF Church is to tell him what to publish; showing no apparent regard as to whether what was posted is accurate or truthful. And so the fautious statements continue and BLCF must continue to post this disclaimer against claims of fictional partnerships that never happened, nor never will.
We do not know any good reason why the author continues to refuse to correct or remove his fatuous postings about a church and its mission to help Toronto’s the homeless. Unfortunately, as long as the various BLOGs and web pages maintain a the fatuous position that part or all of Project 417 was ever or is currently in any partnership with Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship, we are forced to keep this disclaimer.
The Web sites making such fatuous partnership claims may be found if you Google search: ‘Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship Partnership Project 417’. Some of the web pages that inaccurately claim past or current partnership with Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship that never existed are:

Further, Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship Church and BLCF Cafe Community Dinner for the homeless and marginalized uses no outside web-based donation service; receives no government funding; has no corporate sponsorships; and maintains a strict policy of not charging any participatory fees to its volunteers. Finally, since its inception in January 2008, BLCF Cafe, (also called Bloor Lansdowne), Community Dinner was established by and is operated solely under the auspices of Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship – BLCF Church.

Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

Q: WHEN IS A CHURCH MORE
THAN JUST BRICK AND MORTAR?
A: WHEN THE PEOPLE OF THE CHURCH DECIDE TO PROVIDE FOR THOSE WHO ARE HOMELESS AND DISADVANTAGED WITH A WARM MEAL IN A ENVIRONMENT THAT IS SAFE AND FRIENDLY.

Provide all guests with a nourishing meal; to treat our guests with dignity & respect; augment meals with music & fellowship; establish significant relationships; share the Gospel of Jesus in word and deed; and in cold weather to provide our guests with scarves, gloves, toques and socks.

FACTS ABOUT BLOOR LANSDOWNE CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP (BLCF): BLCF Café Community Dinner Motto: ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ – Matthew 25:40
A Church with a vision.
Some 75 years ago, a group of believers embarked on a mission to bring the message of the gospel to the Bloor Lansdowne area in a relevant and meaningful way. The membership moved into a converted truck garage on Bloor Street near Lansdowne Avenue establishing the Church of the Crusaders. Now seven decades later the church, now known as Bloor Lansdowne Christian Fellowship, continues to meet the challenges of actively preaching and practicing the message of the gospel in relevant and meaningful ways to the local community, such as BLCF Cafe, a weekly Community Dinner feeding 100+ souls, run under the auspices of our church and a dedicated core of volunteers. The Bible says that a church is not mortar, brick and wood, but the body of believers who gather together to worship, pray, sing, teach and celebrate God’s path of salvation, through accepting Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross at Calvary.
Last Wednesday at the BLCF Cafe Community Dinner, we welcomed a youth team of hard working volunteers from the College Street Y.M.C.A. We were grateful for the teams help, aS we are are dependent solely upon volunteer help and donations to operate the Community Dinner which feeds 100+ homeless and marginalized people every week (over 5,000) since we started in January, 2008. Thanks! Hope to see you again in the near future.
