Weekly Activity Calendar

We're excited to unveil our weekly activity calendar for Toronto Centre Place.  

On Sunday, activities kick off at 10:15 am with scripture class. This year we are exploring the various gospel texts, both canonical and extracanonical.  At 11:00 am we begin our weekly church service. Although our forms follow traditional North American Christian practice, our lessons, hymns, and prayers are filled with meaningful, contemporary content. Sundays are capped off with our social hour where we share snacks and visit.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday beginning at 6:00 pm, we practice silent sitting meditation, in the tradition of Zen Buddhism. It is OK to arrive late and/or leave early, you can meditate for as long as you want. We are here to provide a supportive community and a calm space to help you with your daily practice. 

On Tuesdays at 7:00 pm  (following the Meditation hour), we have our regular Lecture Series evening, where we have classes on topics ranging from history to philosophy, theology, scripture study, religious studies, comparative religion, and more.

The first Wednesday evening of each month, we encourage everyone to login to Community Place's online streaming community gathering. 

On Thursday afternoon from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm, we're introducing Coffee Talk: a casual forum for meaningful life conversations.

On Fridays at 7:00 pm (following the Meditation hour) we plan to watch "Movies that Matter" and talk about our reactions to the ideas they treat.  Movie Night will be hosted in conjunction with Community of Christ Campus Connections.

Saturdays are set aside for various service projects, such preparing and giving out care packages to under-housed people living in our neighborhood.
