Adult education is formed by the desire to:

  • Expand our knowledge about the scriptures and Anglican tradition
  • Engage in theological reflection and discussion, drawing connection between what we read and what we live
  • Deepen our relationship with God and one another
  • Dialogue with other faith traditions
  • Understand our call to servant leadership

2023 - 2024 Programs include:
