The SCM’s local units are the heart of the Movement. We are so fortunate to have a cadre of coordinators who share their passions and skills. Local units offer programming designed for the specific context and capacity they work in, but they all share the SCM’s committments to anti-oppressive practice and creative, liberatory, inclusive spirituality in the radical Christian tradition.

SCM is currently looking for communities interested in developing their own SCM Canada chapter. If you are a student and/or youth interested in helping co-ordinate a chapter in your community, email us at
