PIN Working Groups

Mennonite Church Alberta

A working group was formed out of local initiatives by both Mennonite and Mennonite Brethren church members in Edmonton. In cooperation with MCC and with Canadian Friends of Sabeel, they have promoted lecture tours, sponsored educational events on Palestine and Israel, and hosted gatherings of people who have been on learning tours to the region.

Mennonite Church British Columbia

Within the Mennonite Church British Columbia (MCBC) structure, the MCBC Palestine-Israel Network task group seeks to promote a just peace in the region through providing opportunities to pray, learn and advocate. To date, we have shared information and promoted web-based resources and events. Looking ahead, we hope that "in-person" organized activity will again be a reality.

Mennonite Church Eastern Canada

The MCEC Palestine-Israel Network Working Group is comprised of about eight members, including one Presbyterian and two Missionary Church people. Its  focus has been promoting tours to Palestine/Israel through Sabeel, MCC and Christian Peacemaker Teams. The group now has five people trained in the Palestine Land  Exercise ( through an MCC trainer ) and has begun to take it to church and other community groups. It has also held lectures on settlements, anti-Semitism and Palestine Liberation Theology. For more information, please go to the group's web page. Contact Kathy Bergen at

They have publish prayer requests and several downloadable resources available here. Chair: Jo Hiebert Bergen:
