20 Congregations in the Eastern Synod Central Toronto Ministry Area: Working together, creating a vibrant church relevant in our communities

11am – 2pm Saturday 04 May at Agricola Lutheran Church

How to Build New Faith Communities in the 21st Century

The church we know might not be the church we need for the 21st century. At least, we need fresh expressions of church, which will look different. Fresh Expressions of Church and traditional forms of church will form a “mixed economy” (Rowan Williams) which leads us to renewal and lively expressions of the Gospel.

What would be a Fresh Expression your church can create? What are the steps to get there?

Rev. Christian Ceconi will share some of the experience from Martin Luther Church. His congregation has recently started a monthly Dinner Church on Wednesday nights, run by a team of young lay leaders.

He will also provide some life hacks on how to get from exploring your neighbourhood and resources (we talked about this during our last lunch & learn) to creating a form of church that might involve new people.
