Jun 3rd, 2023Being a Restorative Church - Creating Brave and Accessible Space

Pastors, Chaplains, Congregational Leaders Event - Part 4 of 4

MCEC Pastors, Chaplains and Congregational Leaders Events (PCCL) have a long standing history for resourcing and encouraging pastors and leaders. This year the PCCL event has been reimagined into four separate events: January 21, 2023; February 28, 2003; May 11, 2023 and June 3, 2023. Join together to discuss, discover and share what it means to become a restorative church.

God’s solidarity to all who are vulnerable call us into actions to create spaces which are inviting, safe and brave. Our presenters will challenge us on how to be a loving and embracing community in midst of the challenges which might be presented to us. Our morning consists of four presenters giving us short presentation into their particular work. In the following workshops you will be able to dive deeper into the topics and engage in conversation with fellow participants and the presenter. This will be the final and most practical of the four PCCL events for 2023.

Join pastors, chaplains and congregational leaders for this time of learning and discussion with Betty Pries, Rielly McLaren and Mike Williamson as they guide us through what it means to be a restorative church. There will be translation provided for this event.
