Resource Highlights

Living Our Faith Stories is a resource kit of five booklets developed from Council’s partnership with Toronto Southeast Presbytery in Mission Articulation Processes (MAP) - part of the Effective Leadership pilot. In addition to an overview and prayer resources, the kit includes practical advice on exploring Context for Ministry, Setting Goals and The Missional Stretch. Contact Toronto Southeast Presbytery for copies.

In September the workbook Welcoming & Belonging – Creating a Culture of Invitation within Your Congregation was introduced to teams participating in a workshop for the Living Presence project. This is the first of a series of workbooks originally written for CCDL by Bonnie Greene and which have been re-edited for wider use.

The Amalgamations and Mergers handbook analyzes the formal and informal dynamics that come into play in the process of amalgamation and provides useful tips on how to navigate the process successfully from beginning to end. Written by Janet Marshall, formerly on staff at TUCC.
