School For Parish Development
Working closely with the Diocese of New Westminster, we are ready to officially launch Ottawa's School for Parish Development February 2018!

Rooted in the Anglican ethos, the School shapes Church leaders, both lay and clergy, to support and foster healthy, sustainable congregations. The skills and knowledge learned equip people on the individual, team, and whole system levels. Completing the program, you will be prepared to recognize your current reality, discern the future, and offer strategy, goals and actions to move forward.

Participants will learn through plenary and small group sessions about change processes, facilitation, congregational and organizational development, personality type, and trust development. Working a series of models, case studies, and facilitated conversations, you will finish the two-year program over a course of eight weekends, confident in your ability to put the knowledge to relevant and productive practice!

Registrants are encouraged to come in congregational teams of at least two or three people of clergy and laity, as teams are proven more likely to create successful, positive change.

St. Helen's Anglican Church
1234 Prestone Drive, Orleans, Ontario
February 02 - 03
June 01 - 02

Elder Care Survey
There are many challenges with looking after elders. Many of them require no assistance at all; others require assistance in living out the golden years.
Housing, isolation, finance, health, mental and end of life issues abound in the elder community as a whole.
The Parish Ministry Committee is gathering opinions and issues from across the province, and will be putting together a number of questions that can be used to influence the political agenda and advocate for better elder care.
Please take a moment to complete our survey, and help us in our mission.
