    EAST COAST GENEROUS SPACE RETREAT

    July 6-8, 2018

    held at St. Stephen’s University, NB

    Generous Space: learning to love across difference at the intersection of faith, gender, and sexuality

    After running five GS Retreats in Ontario and two in British Columbia, we’re excited to finally bring this event to the East Coast! The GS Retreat is a safe place for LGBTQ+ Christians (along with their straight/cisgender parents, pastors, and friends) to be authentic, to share, to worship, to learn and to grow. Come and encounter Christian community with a generous heart and a listening, humble posture.  Come to experience God’s outrageous love and grace. Everyone is welcome to join us, no matter your sexuality, your gender identity, your convictions, interpretations of scripture, or theology.

    WHO IS WELCOME?

    LGBTQ+ people, parents, pastors, allies – everyone is welcome, whether you’ve had prior involvement in our Generous Space community or not. We welcome all ages – we are excited to be providing childcare (up to age 3) during main sessions and workshops. We have had participants join our retreats from as far away as Prince George, Calgary, Saskatoon, Wisconsin, Arizona, Texas and California!

    Featuring Keynote Speakers: Dr. Marvin Ellison & Dr. Wendy VanderWal Gritter
