The Burrard St. Story Guild had its inaugural launch in the spring of 2018 with its storytelling of the prophet Jonah (Swallowed Whole), and has since presented Seven Days (Genesis creation story) and Beloved Child (the initiation of Jesus).

Story Guild uses theatre arts to invite children (Grade 2+) and teens into the stories of the Christian tradition. Participants are given lots of options as regards the extent of their involvement on the stage (depending on confidence and skill levels), yet regardless of experience or training (none required) all the participants work together to build a storytelling event that tells a story from the gospels or the early church. These presentations are staged in the sanctuary at Canadian Memorial United Church at the end of each story guild season and are open to the public.

Registration fee:  $50 per session*

*There are limited bursaries available. 

Registration for Fall 2019 is online NOW.  Hard copy of registration forms can also be picked up from the front office at the Centre for Peace. Payment can be made by cash or cheque payable to Canadian Memorial United Church on September 13.
