WHAT IS EAT, CONNECT + LEARN?
Eat, Connect + Learn is a series of six Wednesday evenings where people from our local community are invited to gather at WMB Church to:
EAT a delicious, family-friendly dinner for just $3/person. We take care of all the cooking and clean-up!
CONNECT with others from our community – perhaps meet someone new!
LEARN something new at one of several fun, free workshops! Choose from a wide variety of topics.
WHO IS IT FOR?
There’s something for everyone at Eat, Connect + Learn. Our workshops are designed for participants ages 3 to 99, and we provide free childcare for infants and toddlers ages 0 to 2 years old.
Come with your family. Youth ages 12 and older may attend unaccompanied by an adult. Invite your neighbours, friends and co-workers to join you. All are welcome!

Description and registration (one registration per person)
HOUR OF CHALLENGE | Ages 12-17
Are you up for the challenge? You will have to be ready to move, react and think quickly as you use your brain and body to conquer these team games. Sign up as individuals. Teams will be created during the workshop.
ESL CONVERSATION CIRCLES | Age 18+
An opportunity for those with English as a second language to practice speaking conversational English in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Chat in small groups about everyday topics such as food, staying healthy, celebrations, etc.
Note: if you are an English speaker and wish to volunteer, please contact Stefanie MacGregor prior to registering.
DISCOVER CHRISTIANITY | Age 14+
Discover Christianity is a gathering where your questions about God turn into a conversation about faith. In this group, you can discuss your doubts and explore the trickiest topics of faith, free from pressure and judgement. If you’re new to faith, just checking it out, or coming back to church after some time away, this video series is a great first step.
DRUMFIT | Age 14+
Join our certified DrumFit instructors for fun-filled exercise while drumming on exercise balls! Routines will be demonstrated at two different intensities to meet you at your current exercise level.
ART STUDIO: PASTELS | Ages 12+
Learn from professional artist Brad Sherk as he teaches how to draw using pastels. These aren’t your Grade 1 oil pastels; these are soft pastels, which are awesome for blending, smudging, layering, smearing, and getting a little messy! Brad will teach the basics of using soft pastels so that no matter what your experience, you’ll enjoy learning how to “paint” with pastel.
ART STUDIO: PAINT | Age 14+
Learn from professional and international artist Monte Wright as he teaches painting. He’ll teach basic art techniques using Emily Carr and Lauren Harris as his guides! Whether you’re a newly budding artist or have been practising for years, this will be a fun time to get creative.
WORLD EXPLORERS | Ages 6-11
Welcome, Bievenido, Wilkommen!
Join us on a virtual field trip as we explore some different places around the world. We’ll play games, taste new foods, make some art, and learn fun facts about other countries along the way.
NOTE: We’ll be exploring different countries from last year’s workshop.
LITTLE LEARNERS | Ages 3-5
Come discover what you can build by using your imagination! We’ll dig into blue bins to find plastic, paper, metal and cardboard to create masterpieces that you can take home and enjoy. Marshmallow sculptures, castles or a katamzoo, the possibilities are endless for a creator like you!
CHILDCARE | Infants/toddlers (0-2 years)
Great quality childcare for infants and toddlers 0-2 years old.
