National Worship Conference: Discover how art, drama, food, fun, poetry, multimedia, music, movement, nature, spiritual elements, and storytelling can be interwoven with Anglican, Lutheran, and cross-generational threads, to create meaningful and transformational worship. The National ELCIC/ACC Worship Conference: “Weaving Strands: Liturgy for Living” will unfold July 20-23, 2014 in Edmonton. Presenters and participants from across North America will explore diverse, yet intrinsic styles of worship. Early bird registration deadline is June 15! For more information see the attached postcard and poster or visit

Michael Harvey, who a number of years ago started the very successful 'Back to Church Sunday' movement, will be here later on in June to lead three identical evenings called 'Launch Pad', what it takes to be an invitational church. These evenings are intended to be for lay leaders, but we are sure they are open to everyone. We encourage you to take part. Tim will be attending the one on June 17th at Good Shepherd in Castledowns and will have three extra seats in his car if anyone else wants to come. You are of course welcome to attend any of the three workshops. The evenings are free, but we are instructed to register by contacting the Synod Office (as they need to know numbers for supper). Please email the bishop's assistant, Charis St. Pierre (, and copy Tim so that he has an idea about who is going from our parish.
