Politics, Planning and Parishes (George Sumner/Steve Shaw)
WYP2701HS Aug 27 -30, 9:00 to 15:00, M-F
Urban congregations exist within a community where all land uses are coordinated through official plans to ensure the future provision for all land uses, infrastructure and services for the community. Urban parish leadership must know how to engage both these documents and the political processes that shape the urban form and are the context for all urban ministries. This course will examine and explain the political, physical and social context of an urban parish church ministry and the processes and polity of their urban community. This course will be taught by Principal George Sumner, with input from the Rev. Steve Shaw, who is the Priest-in-Charge at St. George’s Toronto. Rev. Shaw has extensive experience in urban planning, having worked in the Planning Department of the City of Toronto and with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority. This class would also be excellent continuing education for church leaders in the GTA who are interested in maximizing the use of their church facilities.
