Banff 2020: Updated July 28 2020

Those in pastoral leadership know that restful rhythms don’t just happen – space must be created for rest and renewal. It has been a privilege to provide such space to our pastors and spouses for the past 44 years in one of the most picturesque locales in the world!

Due to the exceptional and unforeseen global pandemic crisis, and out of care for the well-being and health of our CBWC family, we are unable to hold a viable Pastors and Spouses Conference in November 2020. In a year that so much has been cancelled and people have been “distanced” from one another, Banff would have been a wonderful place to once again connect face to face. While we cannot enjoy all that Banff has to offer this year, below are three pieces of good news moving forward.

We look forward to gathering again in 2021 for a chance to rest, connect, and grow in our relationship with God, self and others.

Reserve A Room Nov. 2-5, 2020: Because of our longstanding relationship with Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, they have agreed to retain our substantially reduced conference rate for the contracted dates that the conference would have been held. If you would like to take advantage of booking a room at the Banff Springs Hotel over the nights of Monday, November 2 (arrival) to Thursday, November 5, 2020 (departure), please call 604.225.5916 for the discount code. There will be no program offered by CBWC during your stay. All costs incurred must be paid for by the individual.  The cutoff for reserving rooms at the discount rate is October 19, 2020

Dr. Scot McKnight is confirmed to be our keynote speaker for Banff 2021! We look forward to welcoming him and others as plans continue to take shape. 

Other resources: We are working on other regionally based options and creative ways to nurture, encourage and support you through Fall 2020. Watch for details via the Events page in the coming weeks and months!
