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.

2019 AGM and Conference

Davd Odom 1

Wolfville Baptist Church hosted our 2019 Annual General Meeting and Conference on October 4-5. Our Guest Speaker was Dr. David Odom, Executive Director, Leadership Education and Associate Dean, Leadership initiatives at Duke Divinity School. Dr. Odom spoke about 21st century congregations, why they are important and how they differ from 20th century ones.

During the AGM the membership approved the Strategic Plan - Proposed Framework. Lee Nicholas-Pattillo and David Allen were elected to another two year term as President and Treasurer respectively, Rev. Marlene Knowles was elected Vice President and Sheila Stanley was elected Secretary.

Roger and Lee

A highlight of the meeting was a presentation to the Rev. Dr. Roger H. Prentice who has been chosen as only the second Life Member of the Canadian Association for Baptist Freedoms. Having been one of the founders of its predecessor, the Atlantic Baptist Fellowship, and having served almost continuously since in a variety of offices, Dr. Prentice was a popular choice for this honour!


scottDue to the retirement of the Rev. Dr. Roger Prentice, Rev. Dr. Scott Kindred-Barnes, Senior Minister of the Wolfville Baptist Church, was elected as the new Editor of the CABF Bulletin.
