New Leaf Design Shop

Etobicoke, ON
January 18-19, 2019

Kingsview Free Methodist Church

15 Kingsview Blvd.
Etobicoke, ON

A New Leaf Design Shop is a 2 day interactive gathering of Church Planters from all stages (ie – thinking about considering, working toward a plant, about to plant, planted, etc…).

This is not your mother’s cookie cutter “10 Easy Steps to Planting a Church” kind of event. These events are action packed and uniquely Canadian. They encourage contextual thinking, culturally responsiveness, and mission adaptability.

If you are looking for help, a chance to think out your plan, and to hear life saving advice for the road ahead, these Design Shops are for you.


Registration is now closed.
