Keeping Anglicans Talking (KAT)
The Anglican Church of Canada has enormous treasures of wisdom, faith, and stories of incredible discipleship. In the people and parishes that make up our church from coast to coast to coast, God’s mission is alive and in action.
Keeping Anglicans Talking is a new way of drawing out and drawing on this wealth of wisdom. In short, compelling talks, Anglicans who have made a difference speak to and with the church about matters at the heart of Anglican identity.
These talks—and the conversations they will start—now belong to all of us. Whether you share one on social media, use them to facilitate a parish discussion on stewardship, or play one for a change of pace at a vestry meeting, Keeping Anglicans Talking is a wonderful way to enliven conversations about things that matter most.
Each video is accompanied by a short introductory description that can be used for promotional purposes or to help you decide how and when to use each KAT message in your ministries.
