What is East Coast Theology?

East Coast Theology is a Theological Expression

East Coast Theology is a Summer School

East Coast Theology is a Publishing Project

East Coast Theology is about what God’s Word is saying through our voice, our heartbeat, for our time. 

Through the sharing of ideas, engaging with churches, and deepening our scholarship in this place we call home, we will write theology for this place and this time. This theological expression will discover what is unique about this place, allowing God to speak through His Word to where we are and what we’re doing here today. 

“Jesus walks here through Mi’kmak’i and Africville, on the waters of the Bay of Fundy and in the mountains of Gros Morne. We follow him with the scent of salt on our clothes and earth on our fingers; through the pine forests of Miramichi and the bustling streets of Halifax. Jesus walks here. We follow him here. The Bible speaks to our experiences and nurtures our faith. Today we recognise that there is an Atlantic Canadian Voice that can engage the important issues here, where sea meets land and sky.”
