AED's events are designed to provide tools and support for church leaders to promote and strengthen the servant ministry of all the baptized. We engage as a community of learners in mutual ministry, sharing resources, knowledge and enjoyment. Won't you join us?
NEW: What Do the Canons Say? Workshop
Saturday, May 7, 2022
FREE (Registration opens March 14)
Have you ever read the The Episcopal Church deacon canons? The Canadian Anglican ones? Canons are not just a set of rules to obey. They are the Church’s effort to provide guidelines for flourishing. AED led a major effort to get new TEC canons adopted in 2006, and they outline both requirements and best practices for diaconal supports. Join Lori Mills-Curran and an Anglican Church of Canada guest to do a deep dive. You will most likely be astonished to learn how much they have to offer to enrich your ministry.
