"Christian Study Centers encourage honest answers to honest questions... Christian Study Centers regard the local college or university they serve as a friend, a friend with whom they may have deep differences, but a friend nonetheless."

"The Burrow"
1650 Western Parkway

The Burrow is an intentional community home right next to UBC. It is a literal home for some and a home-away-from home for others. Whether you need a place to study or to rest, our door is open. 

The Burrow is the also our study centre here at the univesity. Most of our events, whether film nights, public lectures, book clubs, or games nights, happen at The Burrow.

Talk to a Chaplain
Mentoring, Discipleship, and Conversations about God

Want to have a conversation about faith but don't have anyone to talk to? We'd love to meet with with you. Let's grab a coffee on campus, or come over to The Burrow or University Chapel and we'll make a cup of coffee or tea and have a casual conversation. 

You can arrange to meet up with Fr. Geoff, Deacon Paul, or another chaplain or friend of St. Thomas Mission. 

Email Paul or Geoff to arrange to get together.

 “Hospitality means primarily the creation of free space where the stranger can enter and become a friend instead of an enemy. Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.”
