Small Church Summit
September 17, 2016 

St. Mark's Church, Warwick

9 am—3 pm

A day for church leaders to gather and discuss a number of topics important to our small congregations.

The Small Church Summit, presented by the Congregational Development Commission, is a day for church leaders and other interested parishioners from all our congregations (but especially those from churches that have fewer than 75 parishioners in church on Sunday or are served by less than full-time clergy) to gather and discuss a number of topics important to small congregations.

 

This year's theme is: 

"We are All Welcome Here: Three Acts of Joy"
