Christ's mission, our mission


Pursue Peace on Earth

  We are poised to restore Christ’s covenant of peace, even the Zion of our hopes. The hope of Zion will become reality when we live Christ’s peace and generously share his peace with others.

We fulfil God’s ultimate vision as we… 

  • Establish the Temple as a centre to promote peacemaking throughout the world 
  • Engage children in peacemaking around the world
  • Seek justice, create peacemakers around the world 
  • Unite with others to make peace around the world

Highlights from our Peace Colloquy - March 2018 - What an amazing time we had at Dunfield in March 

  •  A Peace Colloquy was realized!
  • Dunfield was used as a Peace Centre and Sue and Paul’s management, direction, and giftedness in hospitality created a safe and caring space for everyone. Vision was expanded as to how it can be used further for peace!
  • A resolution on nonviolence for World Conference 2019 was received by the body, people gave input in a variety of way and it has become a better document through participation of the whole body… and it was PASSED unanimously!
  • Partnering with interfaith/ecumenical/educational avenues occurred!
  • The Peace Team has lived one step further into its mission statement for peace!
  • In the small group discussion on Communion we talked about the possibility of everyone eating bread and drinking wine at the same time and in the Communion service, a few hours later, this was lived out!!!
  • “I can’t wait to tell everyone about the next one!” – Leanne
  • People actually DANCED to FANANA… was that the Spirit of peace moving throughout their entire bodies???!!!???!!! It sounded BEAUTIFUL as people harmonized without sheet music!
  • “I have so much to learn!” – Zach
  • A statement right after the colloquy: “You made it to the finish line!” Response: “It feels more like a baptism!” – Rand & Elray
  • “I have been waiting for this conference for 15 years!” – Pete
  • The youth prepared and delivered the Daily Prayer for Peace
  • “It must be so exciting to be a part of Community of Christ right now!” – Sam (guest speaker)
  • Young people got involved, were excited about the topics, and felt safe to participate fully!
  • “It’s like being in a parallel universe where everything you would want to happen, happened!” – Chris (guest speaker)
  • “Thank you for the impact the children’s activities have had on my child.” One child now wants to attend more Community of Christ events.
  • Joan Thompson’s Spiritual Practices and Pam Breeze’s prayer.
  • “I want to go to World Conference.” – Dan

It was a delight to step into and dwell in God’s peaceable kingdom, if only for a moment and to catch a glimpse of what is to come!
