We all have questions about the future of our churches. Some of us are finding new growth out of adversity, some are struggling to find the energy to continue. Getting together, sharing ideas, and feeding off each others' passion and enthusiasm is what we all need.

St. Andrew's is excited to present an ecumenical educational, connectional and social event for all church people. We have invited Richard Manley-Tannis and Shawn Sanford Beck from St. Andrew's College in Saskatoon to join us and facilitate seminars. Other presenters will be announced soon!

Seminars will include

  • Appreciative Inquiry

  • Modern Communications for Churches - Social Media as Evangelism

  • Eco-theology

  • In-depth look at Audio/Video Technology for Churches, especially focused on Streaming

  • Renewing Passion for Worship
