Understanding our Sikh Neighbours

Friday, March 3, 2017: 6:30-9:00pm

Saturday, March 4, 2017: 9:00am-4:00pm

DESCRIPTION: This seminar is designed to help build bridges towards understanding our Sikh neighbours. The seminar will discuss how the teachings of Sikhism differ from Hinduism. The participants will have the opportunity to visit a Gurdwara (a place where Sikhs worship) for a time of interaction. After completing the seminar, participants will be able to pray and witness more effectively to their Sikh neighbours.

FACILITATOR: Pat Bhatti was born in Punjab, India to a family whose ancestors believed in Hinduism for generations. It was through the labors of Christian missionaries that his grandfather came to faith in Christ. Pat’s parents followed Christ and raised him to fear God. After graduating college, Pat served in a missionary hospital and later taught in a Christian High School in the Punjab. In 1972, he moved to Canada with his wife and four children. With the influx of Punjabis to Canada in the eighties and hardly any outreach for this people group, Pat was wondering who would share the good news with them. It was then the Lord called him into ministry. As an ordained pastor with C&MA, Pat has been serving the Multicultural Alliance Church in Edmonton for 24 years and reaching out to the South Asians through market place evangelism.
