Faithfully living out God’s missional call today requires us to see ministry and congregational life in fresh ways. Join in a series of online conversations to discover how to reframe our perspectives and reconnect with our neighbours in order to grow and flourish.

reconnect & reframe is a learning and exploring partnership between the dioceses of Fredericton and Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island. Sessions are Thursday evenings on ZOOM. Each includes a dynamic presentation on a particular theme, several local examples, followed by small group discussion.

The first module, beginning January 26, is a four-part series on Collaborative Ministry Leadership. Learn how to build effective teams of laity and clergy, lead through liminal times, avoid burnout, and creatively adapt. Includes practical case studies. Speakers for this first series include diocesan bishops David Edwards and Sandra Fyfe, as well as Rev. Dr. Heather McCance, Director of Pastoral Studies at Montreal Diocesan Theological College. Collaborative Ministry Leadership runs January 26 at 7PM, February 2 at 8PM, February 9 at 8PM. and February 16 at 8PM.

Other multi-part reconnect & reframe modules in early 2023:

  • Rethinking Community Engagement;
  • Reimagining Buildings & Property;
  • Funding Sources for Innovation (alternate revenue streams);
  • Fresh Expressions of Church (starting new congregations).

Each of the modules features real-life examples and many Maritime church scenarios. Anyone may attend any of these free sessions. We encourage congregations to send a team. Individuals are warmly welcomed too.
