Ecumenical church in downtown Halifax. It is called Koinonia (meaning "Community") Church. It meets bi-weekly, so check LocalEvents for which Sundays.
We are a small faith community forming a solid foundation so we do no harm in practicing our faith.
The minister is Pastor ElaineWalcott. Her background is Baptist.
She herself is straight and has a husband and two sons but she truly feels that gays and lesbians have had a raw deal with church experiences and hopes that gay and lesbians might give this almost decade age church a try.
She is very committed to doing same sex marriages or unions and believes it is the right to have a church bless such a union if a same sex couple wishes.
The space for the services is donated by Petrie's Halifax Feast Dinner Theatre (owned by JimPetrie.)
It is not a traditional church as folks would think. As it was in the beginning in Early Church History; the congregation just sits at the tables and the stage is used as the altar.
The more choices we have for church the better. All are welcome.
Rev. Elaine Walcott is a Professional Multi-Faith Chaplain willing to provide spiritual care, crisis support, prayer, and counseling. She has an extensive skill set and designs weddings and funerals with a very personal focus.
Pastor Elaine can be reached at 876-8771 or mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
It's one of several gay friendly churches - more can be found on ReligionLinks. Going to church is a great way of Meeting People.
