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.

    The ALW coffee klatsch continues! Yesterday I had the opportunity to get together with three MCEC pastors in a downtown Hamilton restaurant. As the winter rain (!) fell outside on James Street, we gathered inside to enjoy good food and good conversation.

    In a recent ALW workshop, participants moved into the foundation both physically and figuratively. The result was both informative and inspiring for all those who had gathered to learn about Anabaptist history and Ethiopian history.
