Although Abbey North is a private home, we occasionally host gatherings to bring people together in support of our vision and community projects, and participate in other local events. Please check back now and again to see what opportunities are on the horizon.

Africa - Signs of Hope, at Abbey North, 1487 Cranberry Lake Rd. (near West Guilford) - Haliburton. Katharine Hagerman and Miriam Patterson have recently spent more time in Africa, Katharine in South Africa and Miriam in Rwanda.
Both are engaged with the vitalisation of communities in these countries, as well as in Kenya, albeit with slightly different approaches.
Let us gather to learn about the work of these two amazing women, each with ties to our community. We will hear them speak, and in support of their efforts share an opportunity for discussion concerning some of the pain and the signs of hope in Africa – the most challenging continent on the planet.
