Like many millennials, Ms Allard had not attended church in years. She went every Sunday as a child, but when she hit her teenage years, she lost interest.https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-55419894
Now, with nothing but time on her hands, she decided she would revisit her faith and see if she could find it a home. The pandemic had caused most churches
to go from in-person worship to online services, which made it easy for her to try out different denominations.
“I could just test different styles and figure out what fit best with me and my belief system and what made me feel the best,” she says.
One of those churches was the Meeting House, a protestant church that a friend had told her was “a church for people who don’t like church”.
“I happened to attend their Sunday service, and they were doing a four-part series on basically love, and the fact that Jesus is love, and that so resonated
with me, because I really believe that, and now more than ever do we really need love,” she says.
