Pain de vie / Bread of Life

an emerging community in Montreal, QC

Despite its bitter and long winters, Montreal provides a warm home for many immigrants who choose to settle here. Some time ago, Bassem Benjamin was one such immigrant from Egypt. He was able to find work to provide for himself and his family, but always felt compelled to preach and share the love of God with others and to lead and encourage Arabic-speaking people in particular. In January 2017, he led a small group of four families to begin gathering in a home to study the Word of God together. By October of that year they had grown to 15 families and began to meet publicly. In January 2019 they became an official New Venture of the Christian & Missionary Alliance.

MEETING TIME | Sundays from 6:00-8:00pm

LOCATION | Fairview Alliance Church, 220, rue Hyman, Dollard-Des Ormeaux, QC H9B 1L8
