As a founding member of The Canadian Churches’ Forum for Global Ministries, the Anglican Church of Canada supports the forum’s educational work in intercultural and international faith formation. National Anglican volunteers and staff serve on the forum board, shaping programs and future directions in tune with interests and needs expressed by church members: interests in deeper, healthy relationships for mission and ministry across cultural difference. Such programs also strengthen awareness and skills for intercultural ministry in Canada.
The forum continues to offer orientation and re-entry programs for mission personnel.
Global Relations assists parishes and dioceses with information about forum programs and other global-local resources for mission and ministry in intercultural contexts.
Examples of global-local resources for mission:
- Deepening Understanding for Intercultural Ministry: a six-day program about the art of intercultural ministry, run by the Canadian Churches Forum for Global Ministry, a partner of General Synod
- Cracking Open White Identity towards Transformation: Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network Examines White Identity, Power and Privilege—a bilingual guide by the Canadian Council of Churches
