About this Event

Le texte en français suivant

Have you ever wished you could gather Canada’s Christian churches and have an in-depth, nuanced conversation about the status of Christianity is our diverse society?

On October 26, 2019, we’re making that possible.

To mark the 75th anniversary of The Canadian Council of Churches in 2019, we’re hosting a cross-Canada conversation that will engage the context of Christianity in (Francophone, Indigenous, Diaspora, and the rest of) Canada. “CHRISTIANS TOGETHER IN CANADA TODAY” creates an opportunity for diverse Christian contexts to speak on "What is the place of Christianity in Canada today?"

Our panelists are:

  • Pastor JoAnne Lam, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, Eastern Synod
  • Pastor Mary Fontaine, The Presbyterian Church in Canada
  • Pastor Ken Shigematsu, Tenth Church in Vancouver, The Christian and Missionary Alliance Church in Canada
  • Bishop Noël Simard, Catholic Bishop of Valleyfield, Québec
  • Dr. Marie Wilson, Former Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada

Best of all: this event will be conducted via live-streaming so that church and community groups, as well as individuals, will be able to join in all across Canada. The event will also feature English-French interpretation and closed captioning in both languages to ensure accessibility for all participants.

Schedule:

12:30 p.m. Meet & Greet participants

1:00 p.m. Live-Stream event

(include table group discussions and questions

and answers with panelists)

3:00 p.m. Light refreshments and networking with local
