Turning churches into community hubs

Nov. 22 workshop an opportunity for Calgary faith communities to explore transforming their worship spaces

Lincoln Park resident Amber Cannon credits the increasing well-being of her neighbourhood largely to the work of a local church, Bethany Chapel. The church runs a recycled clothing store for local residents, hosts community dinners and facilitates monthly meetings for local women to connect and learn specific skills. This is one picture of how a faith community’s gathering place might become a community hub.
