The City of Peterborough is excited to announce a one-day workshop on Regenerating Places of Faith, organized in collaboration with Regeneration Works: Places of Faith (a partnership of the National Trust for Canada and Faith & the Common Good).
Places of faith in south-central Ontario, like so many across the country, face decreasing financial and human resources that are putting beloved community landmarks at risk. It is an issue that affects entire communities, both urban and rural.
Participants in this workshop will hear inspirational stories from across Canada and from the Peterborough area, and will learn how to tackle key issues threatening places of faith through community engagement strategies, cost reduction techniques, innovative space sharing models and approaches to successfully re-use a former place of faith.
Join us from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, February 25th, at Trinity United Church, 360 Reid Street, Peterborough. Registration fee of $35 includes refreshments and lunch.
