After the restructuring of the courts of The United Church of Canada in 2018, clusters and networks became a hot topic. Join Jane Dawson of Eastern Ontario Outaouais Regional Council and Alexandra Belaskie of EDGE, as they dive into what is a network, what are some examples of networks in action right now, and how do networks offer another way to engage our faith in society. If you would like to be in touch with anyone featured in this video, please comment below, or email edge@united-church.ca.

Create a more informed, responsive, and impactful ministry. The Theory of Change workshop will explore links between your ministry's activities and outcomes for the purpose of planning, participation, and evaluation. The resulting product will guide and focus your work, helping you increase intentionality and purpose. We believe this workshop will help you significantly improve your spiritual, social, ecological, and financial impact and better accomplish the change your ministry is trying to accomplish.
 
Start Date: June 14, 2021
