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.

Gathering News

On Saturday, April 24, 150 participants gathered on Zoom for the Spring meeting of the Gathering of Baptists to be encouraged to consider making our churches " A BiggeBox of Crayons " big enough to fully include our LGBTQ+ sisters and brothers. Cal Malena, was the keynote speaker, and Anne Smith, Rachel Brooks, and John Boyd joined moderator David Ogilvie as a panel to discuss how their churches navigated processes that led to them to become "welcoming and affirming." The session was recorded and is available on the Gathering's YouTube channel here.
