Canterbury in the Community (CiC) is open to all Houston-area college students, grad students, and even those who are in between degrees. Our mission is to form communities where young adults from various backgrounds can support each other, ask challenging questions, pray together, and grow in faith and understanding.
Regular Gatherings in the Greater Houston Community
Ladies’ Night, 7-8:30 pm (check the calendar for locations)
In Fall 2018, Ladies’ Night will be happening in homes on the southeast side of town and on the west side of town. Ladies’ Night is a small group for young women who desire to strengthen and pray for each other and to learn to lead in their own communities. This summer we have been having hope and laughter-filled conversations with female leaders in the Church about where we have been and where we are headed. This fall, we will be taking a look at Brené Brown’s book Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone.
Ladies’ Night will gather on the SE side on August 3, September 7, October 5, and November 2.
Ladies’ Night will gather on the west side on September 14, October 12, and November 9.
Guys’ Night, 7-8:30 pm (check calendar for locations)
During the Fall of 2018, Guys’ Night will be getting together at the Episcopal Service Corps (ESC) house just north of downtown Houston. Guys’ Night is a time for us guys to get together to eat, pray and talk. It’s a place to discuss the things that are happening in our lives, the good, the bad, and the everyday stuff.
Guys’ Night will gather on September 14, October 5, and November 2.
The Skeptics Supper Club, 7-8:30 pm
The Skeptics Supper Club is a monthly small group that comes together over dinner to discuss those questions that you might be afraid are too irreverent, too basic, or too out-of-bounds. Skeptics meets on the west side in one of the back rooms at La Madeleine (10001 Westheimer) and on campus at the University of Houston in the AD Bruce Religion Center. People generally pick one meeting location or the other, but you are welcome to join us for both. Dinner is provided by Canterbury.
The Skeptics Supper Club West, 7-8:30 pm at La Madeleine (10001 Westheimer): August 9 (Faith, Science, and Knowing Things), September 20 (Faith, History, and Knowing Things), October 4 (Who is the historical Jesus?), November 1 (The God of the Omnis)
The Skeptics Supper Club UH, 7-8:30 pm at the AD Bruce Religion Center: August 23 (Faith, Science, and Knowing Things), September 13 (Faith, History, and Knowing Things), October 18 (Who is the historical Jesus?), November 8 (The God of the Omnis)
Note: If you are coming from off campus to UH for Skeptics, we will take care of your parking.
