Small Groups

Small Groups at Neighbourhood accomplish three things:

  • They help us to focus by concentrating on a subject.
  • They help us learn how groups work by being conscious of how we act in a group.
  • They deepen our spiritual friendships.

Each group is designed to mentally/spiritually stretch us and help us handle ourselves within a (mostly) safe group context.

Most groups meet in the evenings, about once or twice a month. The meetings last for one or two hours, and are free for Neighbourhood members.

 

GROUPS:

Meditation

We offer weekly meditation calls led by Rev. Wayne Walder and Gillian Hegge. Meditation is eclectic, using Buddhist, Muslim and contemporary practices.

Every Wednesday, 7:30 – 8:30 pm at 79 Hiawatha Rd.  We begin and end on time.

Choir

Each Monday at 7:30 pm, choir members learn and practice song rhythms with our choir director Susanne Maziarz.  Free.  79 Hiawatha Rd.

Getting Good with Conflict

This small group reflects creative ways we can handle conflict.  We focus on conflict, how it happens, how we feel, and what we can do about it.

This group meets approximately once a month on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 9 pm (starting Feb 9) in the Meditation Room. Free for Neighbourhood members, $50 for non-members.

Sign up began in January 2016.
