Welcome today!

Guest Preacher, Michelle Owens, Principal of the Centre for Christian Studies

The Centre for Christian Studies is a national theological school based in Winnipeg (just up the street at 60 Maryland St). CCS has connections to the United Church of Canada and the Anglican Church of Canada, and provides theological education for those becoming diaconal ministers in the United Church of Canada, and educational opportunities for anyone interested in exploring leadership and faith/spirituality. CCS describes itself as a school, a community and a movement that seeks to educate leaders for justice, compassion and transformation.

Michelle joined the Centre for Christian Studies as principal in August 2017. She is a graduate of the Centre and a diaconal minister in the United Church of Canada. Michelle came to Winnipeg from Ontario, where she served as London Conference’s Personnel Minister. Prior to that, she had served in a three point rural charge in Perth County, Ontario, and had been a candidate for ministry from Trinity St. Paul’s United Church in Toronto.

This week in the Winnipeg Presbytery prayer cycle we remember the clients and staff of West Broadway Community Ministry and the Winnipeg Presbytery staff.
