The Nones:
An Evolving Story of Secularity in Canada

Friday, April 12, 2019

Hamilton, ON

Leaders in the Canadian church know that the religious landscape in Canada has changed. We feel it when we’re tasked with closing empty churches or when churches wrestle to find meaningful connection points with their neighbourhoods. We even feel it with new and innovative church plants struggling to reach those with no previous church experience. 

Come listen and learn together as we host a unique and interactive conversation with Canadian Academics and Missional Practitioners who will introduce us to the Canadian Missionary crisis of the Nones, those who are unaffiliated with any organized religion. Spend the day with a diverse array of brothers and sisters and engage together in fresh conversations about how we are to respond as the Church here in this cultural moment in Canada.
