Student Initiatives

“Others” Group

This student-led group meets monthly (selected Tuesdays at 1:00 pm) for spiritual exploration and discussion. Open to all students, it provides an alternative to denominational worship services. Current participants represent Hindu, Jewish, Unitarian, and Mennonite traditions.

Inter-faith Action Projects

Recently, VST’s Inter-religious Studies students have facilitated discussion at VST about multicultural welcome; coordinated a series of inter-faith food garden tours at Or Shalom Synagogue and St. Anselm’s Church; worked with the Surrey Multicultural Council to create a “World Harmony Week” event; arranged inter-faith visits to Sikh and Hindu sites; and helped organize Muslim-Jewish-Christian sharing events.
