Turn your face into the ‘winds of change’, discover new possibilities for your faith community and ‘find your joy.’This autumn’s Vital Church Maritimes (VCM) conference is all about effectively navigating change. Whether it’s adapting ministry in a pandemic, exploring cooperative partnerships or tackling a major parish redevelopment, there are some essential best practices that can be enlisted to help prepare the way.

VCM 2020 is welcoming as guest speaker, The Rev’d. Tasha Carrothers, from the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster, B.C.  As Missioner for Parish Development, Tasha’s focus is to support parish leaders as they work to foster more faithful and effective faith communities. She provides one-on-one consulting with parishes, offers coaching to clergy, and leads educational programs. Tasha has extensive experience in training, including ‘Groundwork’, a worship series on membership growth, interim ministry and has taught with the Diocesan School for Parish Development for several years.
