Skeptics Supper Club: The Skeptics Supper Club is a monthly small group that comes together in an on-campus and a west-side location over dinner to discuss those questions that you might be afraid are too irreverent, too basic, or too out-of-bounds.  This month, the on-campus group (March 1 @ the AD Bruce Religion Center) will be exploring questions around scriptural authority: Why might I trust the writers of scripture?  The off-campus group (March 8) will be discussing big questions related to salvation.  What does it mean to be “saved”?

Ladies’ Night: Ladies’ Night is a group for young women, which meets in members homes on the southeast side of town.  This semester we are looking at the stories of the women in the Bible who fly below the radar.  What can we learn from these women and from each other that will change our own lives today?

Men’s Group: The Houston Canterbury Men’s Group meets monthly at the Episcopal Service Corps house for fellowship, prayer, and the opportunity to do life together.

The Gathering: The Gathering is a weekly student-centered Christian worship community hosted by St. Luke the Evangelist Episcopal Church at 3530 Wheeler Ave, 77004.  We gather from 6:30-8:30 pm each week for a celebration of communion followed by dinner together.  All are welcome, even if you just want to join us at the dinner table.

Grace Hour: Grace Hour is a weekly opportunity to come together to check-in and to explore our faith together.  On March 6, we will continue our exploration of Liberation Theology with an encounter with James H. Cone’s and Wil Gafney’s work on black and womanist theology.  After Spring Break, we will shift our focus to Holy Week.  What does it mean to walk through the events of Holy Week together every year?  Where do the various traditions around Holy Week come from and how do they change us?

Common Worship: Common Worship is a weekly ecumenical worship service in the Meditation Chapel on the 2nd floor of the AD Bruce Religion Center at UH.  Common Worship invites you to take a moment of Sabbath in the middle of your busy week to listen to God speaking in your life.

Copa de Canterbury: GOOOAL!  Canterbury is sponsoring this mini soccer tourney to bring young adults and youth together from our communities in the Houston area.  To register, contact eobrien@houstoncanterbury.org.  Canterbury needs you on our team!

Stations in the Third Ward: On Good Friday, Houston Canterbury will come together with Tour de Hood (a Third Ward organization focused on community revitalization), St. Luke the Evangelist, CCC 20s & 30s, and St. Stephen’s to do a community-based Stations of the Cross.  The stations will take us to various historic sites in the Third Ward where we will experience the stories of a community set alongside the story of Jesus’ journey to the cross (and resurrection).  Students from TSU and UH are invited to get to know your neighbors better as you make the journey with them.  Bring your own bike or borrow one from our community partner, Tour de Hood.
