Anglican-Lutheran National Worship Conference begins

From July 18 to 23, Edmonton will host more than 200 Anglicans and Lutherans passionate about worship for a time of fellowship and learning at the National Worship Conference and related events.

A pre-conference symposium with David Cherwien, an internationally acclaimed organist, conductor, and composer, will give participants the opportunity for personalized feedback and features an organ crawl of some of Edmonton’s best pipe organs.

Other pre-conference events include opportunity to hear well-known preachers throughout the Edmonton area and a workshop on singing, storytelling, and sharing the faith.

Notable conference speakers include the Rev. Dr. Ruth Meyers, who will deliver a keynote on the intersection of liturgy and mission and the Rev. Paul Fromberg, an active participant in emergent church conversations, who will offer workshop and worship leadership.

The gathering ends with an optional post-conference workshop on Anglican Church of Canada trial use liturgies.
