Taking Action for Places of Faith in Rural Ontario

An estimated 9,000 faith buildings will close in Canada in the next ten years. What will the impact be on rural Ontario in general and Huron County specifically?

Register for the Rural Conference to be a part of the conversation on Rural Faith Places and

When: April 24th 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM
Where: St. Joseph's Kingsbridge Centre (84675A Bluewater Hwy, north of Goderich, Ontario)

Tickets are $20 Lunch provided

Following a year-long survey of community and not for profit usage of faith buildings the research leads will share the rural data from Huron County. How many not for profits and community groups in Huron County are operating out of churches? How many of those churches might be at risk of closure? What is the threat to the region if they close? What practical action can be taken now to shore up this vital infrastructure? Join the conversation and help us frame what actions to take.

When: April 24th 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM
Where: St. Joseph's Kingsbridge Centre (84675A Bluewater Hwy, north of Goderich, Ontario)

Tickets are $20, and Lunch will be provided.
