Welcome to the Westshore Community of Practice
Some say, "the mountains are my church" or "at the water is where I find God." We get it. It's the same for us. We just want to be together on the path to a fairer world where we each find wholeness.
We follow the Way of Jesus, a way of contemplation and action that shares in the good news promise of new life.
Gathering on the land
The second Sunday of the month, meeting at 9am
Our next hike is planned for June 11, 2023.
The second Sunday of each month, we connect with the sacred in the forest, on the mountain, at the water--after all, God is in all places already.
We walk, we talk, we also walk without talking. And we sit. In silence. And we are grounded.
Would you come with us?
Does it get any better than gathering around a campfire, telling stories and singing songs? There's a reason that the campfire has been the circle of human socialization since our species came into being. Come, join us on the 4th Sunday of the month for a mostly-casual time of eating, giving thanks, and being together.
We are a church plant initiative of the Pacific Mountain Region of The United Church of Canada.
While traditional expressions of church continue to reflect God's love, we seek to do things a little differently. We focus on spiritual practices. We gather outside. We search for ways to be the church in the community.
We strive for harmony within a complicated history that long predates settlers arriving on Turtle Island (North America) and with a geography that exudes beauty even while undergoing major change.
