Following the success of the Children's Ministry Symposium, we are delighted to invite you to be a part of the Amazing 
Weekend for Leaders in Children's and Youth Ministry !
With the expertise of Judy Steers and Jean Daniel Williams as our headline speakers, we will surely be enlightened (and amused as they both have an excellent sense of humor!) Not to mention, the opportunity for personal reflection and fellowship among other leaders in a tranquil nurturing setting.
We can't wait to see you and look forward to hearing from you.
registration sheets (below) are to be completed and returned asap. Thanks!!!
Many blessings,
Lee-Ann Matthews
(MTL Youth Project Coordinator, Anglican Diocese of Montreal)

In ReInvention: Stories from an Urban Church, Mark Whittall shares the insights and wisdom he and a small-but-dedicated team gained as they worked to establish a new congregation in St. Albans Church, the second oldest Anglican parish in Ottawa.
The challenges the team faced were not small: the renovation of the original building, negative reaction from the community to the placement of a day program for the homeless, creating new liturgies and a new kind of church experience, and learning how best to reach out to and involve people with little or no prior church involvement. The result of all these efforts, however, has been the transformation of St. Albans into a vibrant centre for worship, a beautiful venue for the arts, and place of shelter and safety for many of the city’s most vulnerable inhabitants.
