Assemblies

 Each year, we gather either in person or online for an Annual General Meeting. Our in-person gatherings are lively and celebratory as we enjoy face to face time with others in our family of churches through worship, keynote speakers, and connecting time while also holding the annual business meeting portion. In our online meetings, our time together is centered on connecting with our family of churches using the Zoom platform in order to present audited financial statements and proposed budgets for future year. No matter whether in person or online, we are always excited to gather and share our stories of where God is at work among us.

The Gathering 2021 is set for an in-person on May 27-29, 2021 at High River Baptist Church (High River, AB), however, amidst the ever-changing restrictions related to COVID-19 and the projected timeline for the broad availability of a vaccine, our Assembly Planning Team is considering the option of shifting our in-person May 2021 Assembly meetings to an online format. Please watch here for updates as they become available.

CBWC Sunday

Let the CBWC know how we can make this annual event suit your congregation’s needs. Contact office@cbwc.ca.

New Ministers Orientation

Why did we become a CBWC church? Where do I find help with ministry? Who else is in this family of churches?

These questions are answered at New Ministers Orientation (NMO), a 3-day seminar for all ministers joining the CBWC, held at the beautiful Carey Centre in Vancouver. At NMO, you will meet new people and learn about the all resources available through the denomination.

Postponed to 2021.

Leadership Forums

Leadership Forums are an opportunity for all of us in the Canadian Baptist family to gather together, learn from each other and develop partnerships to move local ministry forward. Watch for Leadership Forums in places like Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, and Victoria.
