Rural Churches and Community Space Virtual Conference

February 23, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free
Rural Churches and Community Space Conference

One church building is closing each week within The United Church of Canada. As many as 1/3 of Canada’s faith buildings overall may be in danger of closing. This represents a huge loss not only for communities of faith but also for the wider community in which they are located.

We invite faith leaders and community members to join an online session to discuss the importance of church buildings to the faith community, as well as nonprofit and community groups in a rural setting. The ground-breaking research report, entitled “No Space for Community”, will be presented. This two-year study by Faith & the Common Good and partner organizations examined faith building usage and the impact that their closures would have on the not-for-profit services, organizations and community groups that operate out of those buildings

Questions to be discussed include:

How can we work together to ensure that faith space continues to exist?
How can we repurpose faith buildings?
How does the heritage value of faith buildings impact their future usage?
