Coordinator: Esther Townshend
Esther is an alumna both of York and U of T, who first connected with SCM while helping to organize the Cahoots Festival. She has a background in counselling psychology, but is most passionate about justice-seeking Christian communities – intentional and unintentional.
She is a member of the Jeremiah Community and The Dale in Toronto’s Parkdale neighbourhood, where she has taken on roles from dishwashing to peacemaking to preaching. She enjoys singing, contemplative prayer, community kitchens, and creative actions for justice and peace.
