This year's Lenten Studies will examine the life of the Church of England in Colonial New Brunswick from 1868 to 1892. The wealth of information found in Medley's Charges and extant sermons will be employed as the lens through which we view the issues, debates, and spirit of the Church in that dynamic and evolving era. Church construction, mission expansion, economic upturns and depressions, Synod establishment, poverty, Evangelicals, High and 'Broad' churchmen, advances in travel, and the emerging Anglican Communion all form part of the engaging fabric of the Medley era Church.
