"Christian Study Centers encourage honest answers to honest questions... Christian Study Centers regard the local college or university they serve as a friend, a friend with whom they may have deep differences, but a friend nonetheless."

The Scriptorium Study Hours

Located in University Chapel, The Scriptorium is a centre where anyone can come study, read, write, or just relax with a cup of coffee or tea. 

From September - April, The Scriptorium study hours are Wednesday and Friday from 12-5:00pm.  

We also host regular small group events, film nights, dinners, etc. in the Scriptorium. 

Talk to a Pastor
Mentoring, Discipleship, and Conversations about God

Want to have a conversation about faith but don't have anyone to talk to? We'd love to meet with with you. Let's grab a coffee on campus, or come over to The Burrow or University Chapel and we'll make a cup of coffee or tea and have a casual conversation. 

You can arrange to meet up with Fr. Geoff, Fr. Paul, or another chaplain, pastor, or friend of St. Thomas Mission. 

Email Fr. Paul or Fr. Geoff to arrange a conversation. 

"The Burrow"
1650 Western Parkway

The Burrow is an intentional community home right next to UBC. It is a literal home for some and a home-away-from home for others. Whether you need a place to study or to rest, our door is open. 

The Burrow, along with the Scriptorium, is a hub for our study centre ministry at the univesity. Many of our events, whether film nights, public lectures, book clubs, or games nights, happen at The Burrow.

 “Hospitality means primarily the creation of free space where the stranger can enter and become a friend instead of an enemy. Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.”
