The Canterbury Forum

Welcome to the Canterbury Forum

Due to COVID-19 all Canterbury Forum programming
is suspended until further notice

​​The Canterbury Forum is a project involving a number of mainstream and progressive religious communities in northern Iowa's Cedar Valley.  Its purpose is to inform and educate people about religious issues and to explore the relationship between religion and the broader society and culture -- including science, history, and the arts -- from the perspective of the religious mainstream. 

The Forum invites all who regard faith and reason as partners rather than antagonists to join in the collective and collaborative effort of planning and directing The Forum and its activities.
For information about upcoming Forum programs, see  and Upcoming Forum Programs.  For a topical listing of all the programs the Forum has hosted since 2005, see the Past Program List.  For links to the websites of mainstream faith communities in the Cedar Valley that have supported the Forum, see Community Links. For information about how to contact the Forum and its leaders, see Contact. And for directions to Forum programs, of course, see Directions.
