Welcome to Anabaptist Learning Workshop

The Anabaptist Learning Workshop is a program offered by Mennonite Church Eastern Canada in cooperation with Conrad Grebel University College.

The Anabaptist Learning Workshop is a program of lifelong learning – at the intersection of Christian faith and contemporary life for laypeople, church leaders, pastors, seekers, new Canadians, and others.

The Anabaptist Learning Workshop is a program of exploration inside and outside the classroom.

  3. Dec. 11, 2017What makes care spiritual?Participants take notes while listening to instructor.

    Think about a recent time when you offered care to someone else, or when you received care from them. Now ask yourself these two questions: What makes care spiritual? How are Christians called to give spiritual care to one another?

    Participants engaged these questions at a recent ALW workshop called “School for Laypeople doing Spiritual Care” hosted at Niagara United Mennonite Church (Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON). Most participants were laypeople who are currently doing spiritual caregiving in their own congregation, or laypeople who will offer such care in the near future.
