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, proposed budgets for future years, as well as ministry updates. 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.
As we approach May 2021, the CBWC Board has determined that due to ongoing Covid-19 regulations and the projected pace of the vaccine rollout, the 2021 Assembly will need to be an ONLINE virtual meeting, making Assembly 2022 our next in-person gathering. The online meeting via Zoom Webinar will be held on Thursday, May 27, 2021 at 5:30pm PST. Registration for this online event will open mid-February for all delegates, pastors, and visitors. Lord willing, we will gather for an in-person Assembly in May of 2022, at a location yet to be determined.
The Assembly 2021 digital docket will be distributed to all churches and pastors by April 26, 2021. If you are a delegate for 2021, please check with your church administrator to receive a digital docket for your reference.
For more information and to register, please visit the Assembly page.

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 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.
