Over the course of three to four years, truly by the grace and kindness of God, I discerned an invitation to plant a contemplative church in Winnipeg’s West End.

Our church – West End Abbey – started in our living room in the fall of 2019. Its organizing desire is to facilitate deeper experience and friendship with the Trinity (God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) in a way that features the ethos of spiritual direction, joins historic and contemporary Christian spiritual practices, and values vulnerability.
