Places of faith anchor and shape our communities. Yet many congregations are facing declining attendance and insufficient funding to maintain and operate their historic buildings. These important community assets are in a period of transition, and the Eastern Ontario area is no exception.
What is their future? How can they continue to contribute in a positive way to their communities? Whether it is to keep their doors open through collaborations to generate new revenue streams, making strategic real estate decisions, or meeting community needs under a new ownership structure, the future of these places depends on urgent collaboration among faith group leaders, community organizations, elected officials, the heritage and business communities, universities and more.
Join us at this unique event where local faith groups, heritage and community organizations will share their experience, concerns and creative solutions to the challenges confronting places of faith in Eastern Ontario in an interactive and engaging format.
