The Table. Passing ideas and practical advice between planters, practitioners, and teams. May 28 and 29.

The Table Gathering   —   May 28 & 29, 2020

Passing ideas and practical advice between planters, practitioners, and their teams.

In partnership with McMaster Divinity College, we’re hosting a 2-day gathering to equip and encourage planters and starters – led by Canadian Practitioners for Canadian Practitioners.

With panels, workshops, and storytelling our goal is to help planters and starters form and deepen their new and existing ideas and communities; learning from and connecting with other planters and starters.

Is The Table Gathering for you? It might be if you are looking for the following things:

  • Conversation with Canadian Missional thought leaders and Canadian practitioners, pastors and planters
  • Participation in dialogue about key issues facing our churches and ministries here in Canada
  • Workshops & panels with practical equipping – you’ll leave with rich resources, ideas and advice
  • A place where your core team, your board and your other leaders can come and connect, learn and share
  • Opportunities for you to share the things you’ve learned – there is so much rich wisdom when we gather together!
  • Intentional space for networking time and connecting.

What to expect from The Table

We love a good conference, but this gathering this isn’t your typical conference

  • There are no imported keynote speakers – these are conversations with Canadian practitioners around issues facing the church here in Canada.
  • We believe Canadians have something to share and it’s time for us to cultivate our voice and learn from one another
  • Spaces for community spiritual practices and prayer together as the diverse body of Christ
  • If we haven’t used the word practical enough, we’re going to use it one more time – this is a gathering full of relational dialouge and practical equipping
  • It wouldn’t be a New Leaf event if there wasn’t an actual party – we’re making lots of space for conversation, connection & fun

Here is a sample of a few our Panels and Workshops:

  • Leading and thriving in post-Christian Canada
  • The Kids are Alright – Children/Youth Ministry on church startup dollars
  • It’s not all about the hustle: Sabbath + spiritual practices
  • Managing divergent viewpoints in the midst of our current culture
  • Immigrant and Refugee Church Plants thriving in Canadian soil
  • Contextual, effective, non-violent, and post-colonial evangelism
  • Families, Disabilities, and the Church
  • Helping without hurting – healthy global partnerships for church plants
  • Neighbourhood Engagement – ABCD
