2024 ADC National Deacons Conference in partnership with ELCIC Deacons

Beacons of Hope in a Messy World

Every three years Anglican Deacons Canada in partnership with ELCIC Deacons organizes a national in-person conference for deacons. It is a wonderful opportunity to connect with and learn from deacon colleagues, aspirants to the diaconate and supporters of the diaconate from across Canada and beyond. 

At the 2024 conference, we’ll explore how to turn the infamous phrase, thoughts and prayers, into actions with meaningful change; we’ll explore our calling to be beacons of hope in a messy world. Each day, we’ll join together for morning prayer, all meals, evening prayer, and social hours in addition to key note speakers and events.

The conference is held in conjunction with an ADC members meeting which we anticipate will be held in a hybrid format so that members who are not present at the conference will be able to join us via Zoom. 

Plan now to attend and start investigating possibilities for bursaries from your diocese or church!
