Reconciliation Task Group

Reconciliation Task Group

Following from our church's preparations for and participation in the Truth And Reconciliation (TRC) national event in Vancouver 2013, the congregation is continuing to work to build awareness and understanding of the long-lasting effects on seven generations of Aboriginal children forced to attend Residential Schools in Canada.  We seek to establish better relations with our First Nations neighbours, including the Musqueam peoples, upon whose traditional lands the church was built. and through worship and community action, to deepen our understanding of racism, discrimination and oppression.  Our congregation makes an annual donation of $2,000 to an Aboriginal Education Program Fund, which provides immediate help to the neediest Aboriginal children who attend public schools in Vancouver.  We also invite speakers of Aboriginal ancestry for theme addresses and discussions, exploring and celebrating their cultural and spiritual practices and achievements. Members of the community are welcome to join us in working toward reconciliation and right relations.
