Welcome to the Kootenay Communities of Faith website. As we did with the Kootenay Presbytery website, items of interest about activities will be posted.

For instance, The Beyond Team is working with Leadershift (Treena Duncan) to organize a “Festival of Faith” gathering on June 22-23, 2019 in Nelson. As plans are confirmed the information will be updated here…

Let’s not forget…


We are at a doorway that leads into a new way of being church.
At this doorway
we are not alone:

God has invited us to gather courage from the great cloud of witnesses before us,
as we remember what was…

Christ has challenged us to accept his radical call to discipleship,
as we acknowledge what is…

The Spirit has led us to be Christ’s Church,
as we imagine what will be…

At this doorway:

We take courage in the assurance that God is with us;
we affirm our call to go where Christ leads; and
we trust the Spirit to guide us through the challenging space between what was, what is, and what will be.

Surely, we are not alone.
Thanks be to God.

Sending Forth

As we greet each new doorway,
let us give all thanks and glory to God,
whose power working in us
can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.
Glory to God from generation to generation,
in the church, and through the Spirit,
now and forever,
