A Canadian Experience

Portraits_SarumCollege_WhiteBackground 004Join us on Wednesday March 4th for Sarum College Bursar Mark Manterfield’s talk about his experiences last summer with indigenous Christians in Canada.

In the summer of 2014 Mark Manterfield spent three weeks in Canada, during two of which he attended the Native Ministries Consortium Summer School for Indigenous Christians training for church ministry at Vancouver School of Theology.

During this evening at Sarum College Mark will explain how he came to be there, describe some of his experiences and reflect on them. Expect some photographs, music and singing along the way.

The evening begins at 7.15pm for a glass of wine or juice, 7.30pm start, free & open to all.

The evening is co-sponsored by Sarum College and St Thomas’s and will be hosted by Revd Canon David Linaker.

    Dear Mark,
    The next time you come to Canada, you would be very welcome to visit Saint Paul University’s Indigenous Pastoral Ministry Training Program, in Ottawa. We began three years as as a local partnership with Kateri Native Ministries, and now have both RC (the majority) and Anglican participants. It’s a one-week program that this year will take place August 17-21. Our emphasis is in the process of shifting from training Aboriginal leaders in liturgical presiding and catechetical skills, to exploring points of juncture and disjuncture between Christian and Aboriginal spiritualities.
