Until December 2016
New Exhibit at the Mennonite Archives of Ontario:
“Conchies Speak: Ontario Mennonites in Alternative Service.”
During the Second World War, 2,600 Ontario Mennonite men served in conscientious objector work camps. Through archival records, this exhibit recovers their voices and stories.
This photo exhibit celebrates everyday acts that deepen our sense of community and empower us to collectively change the world for good. Photographers from Waterloo Region and beyond have captured moments of caring, working together, laughing together, and acting together with purpose – the fabric of community life and collective impact.

Grebelites from the 80's - welcome back!
Do you remember when Vern and Joyce ruled the halls? Or when Louise and Howie ran sheet change? Or when Peace Society 'refused the Cruise'? Or when Len led chapel choir tours? To relive these memories and many more, you are encouraged to come back to Grebel and meet old Grebelites from the 80's and see what is happening now at Grebel.
