Parish Leaders Workshops

Upcoming workshops

All parish leaders, including churchwardens, deputy churchwardens, parish administrative staff, treasurers, and clergy are invited to attend. You’ll particularly want to come if you’re new to your position.  If you attended in recent years, the content is very similar.  The workshops are identical so you only need to attend one. 

  • Mon., March 18 – 6:30 pm to 9 pm Register
  • Wed., March 20 – 6:30 pm to 9 pm Register
  • Sat., March 23 – 10 am to 12:30 pm Register
