Bayview Glen Church | Toronto, ON

You’re invited

We believe that God is calling the Church in Canada to a renewed commitment, to live on mission sharing the Gospel. How can we step courageously into this new season as the Church?

The Life Shared Summit is a gathering for those passionate about the Church’s future in Canada and how to reach our nation with the Good News of Jesus.

Message from Shaila Visser

Many of us are beginning to rebuild our lives, churches, and communities after a long season of change. How do we do that well?

For us at Alpha Canada, we believe it’s time to gather and explore those questions together as we mark a new starting line.
