Craigville Theological Colloquy

Building Bridges:
Immigrants, Refugees, and the Church

Monday-Friday, July 9-13, 2018


Partial on-line registration is now open!
See this page for more information.


You may browse the other pages on our web site.  You can read about our past gatherings (updates in progress), discover where the Craigville Retreat Center is located (outer Cape Cod in Centerville), and enjoy pictures of the area and past gatherings.

The 2018 colloquy will be the 35th, at which many from various faiths and faith journeys have gathered for a time of discussion, reflection, challenge, worship, and prayer.  We hope you find the topic and description interesting and will consider joining us. The roots of the Colloquy grew from efforts of leaders and thinkers within the United Church of Christ. Today the leadership, attendees, and speakers are broadly representative of Christ’s Church.


In 2018, the nation is in the midst of multiple and engaging discussions about the stranger among us. Scripture invites us to recognize that — across this nation’s history (400 years or so – discounting for true natives of course) — all people, all of God’s children, are or were once strangers.

Possible questions to consider:

  • How ought the Church in the 21st century speak to or engage with the topic of immigrants and/or refugees?
  • What can individuals, concerned groups, congregations, or communities do with regard to these urgent questions?

These and many more questions will arise. Join us!!
