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.
West Hill invites you to a unique opportunity to experience the ways that we celebrate the turning of the year and the resonances of the major Christian festivals in our community. Ever Wonder is a weekend conference focused on four of the major services of our year– the Longest Night service in December, the two-part Dream Away services over the traditional Christian holy week, and the Celebrated Lives service at the beginning of November. It’s a weekend to engage your whole being – intellectually, physically, emotionally, spiritually – in whatever ways you’re comfortable. Simply put, Ever Wonder will inspire.
The conference begins the evening of Friday, October 31, and ends in the afternoon on Sunday, November 2. It will include engaging presentations of the most moving services of our year, plus participation in the Celebrated Lives service on Sunday morning. Built into the weekend will be time to debrief, unpack, imagine and dream about bringing barrier-free, post-theistic liturgy to your community.
If you’ve ever wondered how we celebrate in a post-theistic, barrier-free, non-exclusive way here at West Hill, or how you might have meaningful, moving, beautiful liturgy without the trappings of traditional theology, this is your chance to experience it!
Registration will include meals throughout the weekend, and a limited number of billets are available with West Hill members for those who’d like a chance to meet the folks who live and breathe this church community all year long.
Connect with us at email@example.com if you’d like more information!
Registration is through the online portal, Eventbrite.
There you will find prices for the full conference, for a Friday/Saturday portion, and group and student rates. We look forward to seeing you!
The Future is Calling Us to Greatness
You’ve seen the warning signs. Is the planet on a pathway to disaster, or is there another option?
What if this time of crisis is an opportunity to awaken to our potential & discover the best of who we can be?
Michael Dowd and Connie Barlow look to “sacred science” for guidance. They call on the wisdom of spirit and faith and the evidence of the sciences to forge a positive future on our evolutionary path.
