When planning for Assembly 2022 began two years ago, it was with an eager desire to gather in Calgary to celebrate 20 years of full communion, and deepen and grow the relationship between our two churches.

Through all this uncertainty, we remain a people of hope, addressing these challenges with creativity and faithfulness.
