A one-day launch into Creation Care to help your church go further.
At the end of the training session, participants will be able to inspire and guide their faith community in adopting environmentally-friendly practices through action and awareness, as well as in developping a Christian spirituality closer to Creation.
This one-day workshop is intended primarily for church staff (clergy, pastoral associates), but also for interested volunteers. It can be adapted for use by any denonimation: Catholic, Anglican, Reformed, Evangelical and/or Orthodox.

Organize a Green Churches Training Session in your faith community this year!
How does it work?
It will cost only $15 per participant (minimum of $150), paid by your organization.
Your organization must arrange lunch for the participants and the session leader as well as transportation for him or her (and accommodation if needed).
Hence, the real cost to the participant is at your discretion.
Suggestion: To increase the number of participants, think of inviting the neighbouring churches (even if they are of different denominations).
Please note that a contract will be sent to your organization and the date will be confirmed as soon as the deposit is received.
