"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."

Spring Book Club

"The Supper of the Lamb"

"This book changed my life," said many a reader of Robert Farrar Capon's cookbook (yes, cookbook), The Supper of the Lamb. Okay, it's more than a cookbook. It's a love letter to God's good creation and an invitation to enjoy and behold His worldParticipants will discuss a section of the book on Zoom every other Tuesday, starting on January 26.

The Scriptorium
A 'Place of Writing' and Study

Located in the basement of University Chapel, The Scriptorium is a centre where students can come study, read, write, or just relax with a cup of coffee or tea. We are currently open for students to come by on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-5pm. 

*During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are requiring everyone to wear a mask and to sign-in. We know that many are struggling to find good places to study and get work done. We hope that The Scriptorium can become one of your go-to spots!

Talk to a Chaplain
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, Deacon Paul, or another chaplain or friend of St. Thomas Mission. 

Email Paul or Geoff to arrange to get together. 

"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 is the hub for our study centre ministry at the univesity. Most of our events, whether film nights, public lectures, book clubs, or games nights, happen at The Burrow. 

During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are not having in person gatherings indoors at The Burrow. For Fall 2020 we will be meeting at University Chapel instead.

 “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.”
