Welcome to the Canadian Association for Baptist Freedoms!
We seek to be a safe and welcoming environment in which Baptists can share all concerns and points of view without fear of being marginalised.
The CABF is a Canada-wide fellowship composed of both individuals and Churches. Currently, our member Churches are located in Nova Scotia and Ontario, but we are open to receiving new members from any province or territory - click here for details.
CABF is pleased to announce that we have contracted with Sobaz Benjamin, Founder and Executive Director of In My Own Voice (iMOVe) Arts Association, to work with us to tell the story of our work as a progressive Baptist Association. Sobaz is a Halifax-based film-director, as well as a community advocate, mentor, program facilitator and educator. In 2009, he started working with the Nova Scotia Justice Department to deliver his Life Story course the (Kintsugi Monologues) at the Nova Scotia Youth Facility, the Central Nova Scotia Correctional Facility and The Nova Scotia Community College. Sobaz was honoured in 2014 by the Provincial Justice Department with a Minister’s Award for Individual Leadership in Crime Prevention. He has taught and presented at a number of public schools and postsecondary institutions, as well as facilitating community-based projects around and beyond the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). Sobaz has also received a Humans Rights Award for his work with youth and directing awards from the National Film Board of Canada and the Canadian Academy of Cinema and Television. We are excited to have Sobaz working with us this year as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of our founding as the Atlantic Baptist Fellowship.
