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.
In-Person Assembly 2022 will be held on May 26-28, 2022
“LIFE TOGETHER IN 3D”
Location: Best Western Premier Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre, Calgary, AB
Registration: will open early January

Banff Pastors and Spouses Conference
Banff Pastors and Spouses Conference in November each year is a time for pastors and spouses to be fed spiritually by our guest speakers, to worship together, to have fellowship with one another and to encourage a time of Sabbath for all who attend.
The BLTS/Ascent Reunion has been postponed until further notice. Please read the full statement here.
Each year in November we celebrate CBWC Sunday in our churches. Choose a Sunday in November to celebrate God’s work and what we do together as a denomination.
For more information and resources, please visit the CBWC Sunday page.
Let the CBWC know how we can make this annual event suit your congregation’s needs. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
