The Reconciliation Task Group at West Point Grey United Church is continuing to work to build awareness and understanding of the long-lasting effects on seven generations of Indigenous children forced to attend Residential Schools in Canada. We are all invited to work towards reconciliation and right relations. For more information on how you can be involved please click here.

Throughout the liturgical year, the Reconciliation Task Group reviews and recommends books written by Indigenous authors or that promote thoughtful Reconciliation discussion. These books are available to church community members on loan from our Fellowship Room Library. If you wish to purchase one of these books, please consider supporting a local Indigenous owned book store such as Iron Dog Books.
