Chapter House

York_Minster_Chapter_HouseA Chapter House is a large room or building attached to a cathedral, collegiate church, or religious house where the members of the order meet together. In monastic communities, the monks gather there to share the news and events of the day, read Scripture, or talk theology. Perhaps the biggest and most ornate of them all is the Chapter House at York Minster Cathedral in York, England (right).

Can you imagine a Chapter House that would accommodate all the members of the Ancient-Future Faith Network at the same time?

AFFN-WebinarRight now, we’re hard at work creating and testing a virtual Chapter House, an online experience that will be big enough, yet intimate enough, to accommodate our growing community– and one located so conveniently that you don’t have to leave your home or office.

One of our early goals at the AFFN was to come together annually for our main conference and also throughout the year for regional workshops and gatherings. As our new Cloisters are growing, we’re hoping that they will become natural places and hosts for those opportunities.

Here are the details for the Audio Chapter House gatherings:

  • At the Chapter House start time, use your phone to dial: (515) 739-1453.
  • When prompted, enter the access code 109084 followed by the pound sign (#).
  • Please note: You may experience cheesy “on hold” music for a short spell. Be patient with us; we’re working on something better
  • Phone carrier/long distance charges may apply.
