Welcome to the Canadian Centre for Progressive Christianity.
Whatever your journey through the church has been, we’re here to connect you with others who have had similar experiences, to challenge your thinking, and to offer you resources as you continue on your way.
Progressive isn’t a place. It is a state of mind and the next step from wherever you find yourself entrenched. Whether in the church, in your workplace, or in your relationships, a progressive perspective is characterized by openness, passion, creativity, and a willingness to explore beyond wherever you are at the moment. If you’re here, it’s very likely because you already know that state of mind. So welcome to the adventure and wherever it is your next step might take you.

Interview an Atheist at Church
A few months ago, a random idea popped into my head: What if pastors interviewed atheists as part of their Sunday service? Having been a youth pastor at one point, and now an atheist, it was as if I was trying to connect two different stages of my life. More importantly, I thought about some of the benefits this might generate amongst atheists, pastors, and congregants alike.
