Some time ago our meeting realized that we had become too big for the space we were in. The Centre for Christian Studies had met our needs so well in so many ways it was hard to imagine moving. Once we started to talk someone said “we have become complacent about meeting in a space that is not wheelchair accessible.” The winds shifted and we began to look in earnest. Our testimony of equality called us to action. The way forward was difficult as there were not places that could meet all our desires and then, only a block away, we found the Westminster Housing Cooperative who could offer us everything. So, starting July 2, 2017 we will meet there, 145 Maryland Ave. each Sunday at 11:00.
Our meeting supports this wonderful program that goes into schools and does a story telling workshops which lead to a home grown story, artwork, banner and other outcomes such as books. Here is a picture of the banners produced at Champlain School in Winnipeg’s North End.
