Seminars and Workshops

As part of the Reimagining Contemporary Ministries for a Renewing Church project, we are holding a regular series of seminars and workshops on topics connected to the core themes of creative and flexible leadership, missional ministry, and welcoming people into the rich diversity of the church. These events are open to all students and faculty at Trinity College and across the Toronto School of Theology, to alumni and friends of the college, and as continuing education opportunities for those in church ministry.
