Suppertime Bible Study.

Mondays at the Conservatory in Room 15 at 5:30pm. Please join us as we read, reflect and discuss!

This year we are beginning with a 5-week Living the Questions video program The Jesus Fatwah: Love your (Muslim) Neighbour as Yourself. ďMuch of what passes as information about Islam is weed-like disinformation rooted in stereotype and watered by fear. In The Jesus Fatwah, Islamic and Christian scholars offer reliable information about what Muslims believe, how they live out their faith, and how we all can be about building relationships across the lines of faith.Ē In light of current events happening worldwide, we look forward an interesting and informative series and interesting discussions. All welcome.

GO Project Training Weekend - Teaching Children

GO Project This is an opportunity for Junior and Senior High youth to gain experience in leading Sunday School and other children's programming with a specific mission focus. During the workshop, youth will learn how children learn, and how to integrate Scripture, mission and stories into lesson plans that are engaging for children. The youth will also have their own experience of faith, worship and mission, and learn how to use a multicultural, LGBTQ+, aboriginal and justice focused lens in planning programming for children.

A conversation with Catherine Martin, Mi'kmaq elder, on indigenous history and spirituality - Friday September 22 at 7:00 to 9:00pm
Workshop on Children's Programming - Saturday September 23 at 9:00am to 5:00pm
Place: Maritime Conservatory, 6199 Chebucto Road
Cost: $10 (includes all snacks, lunch on Saturday, and a resource manual)
