Welcome to Contemplative Fire Canada

Travelling Light, Dwelling Deep


Contemplative Fire is a dispersed monastic community that follows a rhythm of life of 'Travelling Light - Dwelling Deep" that is rooted in prayer, study and action.  Drawing from the broad Christian contemplative tradition, we seek to be fully present to the kingdom of God right here and right now.  As our name implies we enjoy the mystery and paradoxes of life, of being both contemplative and on fire.

We welcome you to join us on this journey - please browse our website and stay connected with us.

Worship Gathering 


January 31st at 4 pm - "What do you want me to do now?"  Known by God.  Loved by God.  Sent by God.  What a life.  Help!

Everyone is welcome to our community worship times.  We offer an experiential encounter with scripture and contemplative communion meal.  Expect stillness, spaciousness, and room to meditate and participate as and if you wish.  Linger afterwards at one of our relaxed meals together.  If possible, bring something for a common table.

Silence begins at 4.

At the Church of St Leonard.
