CANADIAN BAPTIST HISTORICAL SOCIETY
Saturday 7 March 2009
Heritage Seminary 175 Holiday Inn Drive,
Cambridge ON, Canada N3C 3T2
The Canadian Baptist Historical Society (CBHS) traces its origins back to the nineteenth century when Baptists passionate about their heritage began a process of preserving critical documents and studying the Baptist presence in Ontario and Quebec. Its primary focus is on the history of all Baptists in the Canadian context, but the study of Baptists around the globe is also a part of its mandate. Scholars, pastors, students and those interested in Baptist history are all warmly invited to attend meetings of the society. The CBHS is always interested in paper proposals for its meetings, and if you have a proposal for next year’s meeting please send it to Gord Heath.
The CBHS has also recently started to publish a series of books on Baptist history. Volume One will be on Canadian Baptists and Public Life (anticipated publication in 2009). Two other volumes are anticipated in 2010 and 2011.
Future locations will be McMaster Divinity College (2010) and Tyndale Seminary (2011).
