About Creating Connection

Creating Connection is a network of more than twenty inclusive communities across Canada (and now some in the US) committed to sharing authentic conversation and promoting meaningful activities. Our communities engage in a variety of activities, including: coffee & conversation, adult coloring, drum circles, mindfulness meditation, yoga, lifelong learning & lectures, and knitting circles.

Our Mission

Our mission is to invite everyone into community, to continually learn & grow, to abolish poverty & end needless suffering, to pursue peace & justice, and to live life meaningfully together.

Creating Connection is sponsored by Community of Christ, a progressive Christian denomination with 250,000 members spread across 40 nations. ​Creating Connection Niagara is sponsored by Niagara Falls - Lewiston Community of Christ. We are also sponsored by Encounter World Religions Centre (Toronto), an interfaith organization.
