The end of January and the beginning of February was a busy time for people interested in fresh expressions-related conferences. Both the Vital Church Planting (VCP) conference in Toronto, and the Vital Church Maritimes conference outside Halifax, were co-sponsored by the Wycliffe College Institute of Evangelism  and the respective local dioceses.

Writing for the Anglican Journal, Diana Swift wrote,

“With its theme of “Church for Every Context,” the annual Vital Church Planting (VCP) conference launched on January 30 at St. Paul’s, Bloor Street, in Toronto. Sponsored by the Anglican diocese of Toronto and Wycliffe College’s Institute of Evangelism, the conference brings inspirational speakers and how-to workshop leaders together each year to explore new directions for the missional church.

After greetings from Archbishop Colin Johnson of Toronto, Wycliffe College’s Dr. John Bowen introduced the opening plenary speaker, the Rev. Dr. Mike Moynagh of Fresh Expressions U.K. The author of several books, one whose title provided the conference with its theme, Moynagh outlined the explosion of fresh expressions of church in Britain’s 42 Anglican dioceses.” – Read Diana’s complete report here. Notes, podcasts, and HD videos of the talks will be posted on the VCP website over the next few weeks.

Carl Fraser, writing in the March edition of the Diocesan Times (Nova Scotia & P.E.I.), commented,

“I rejoice in the ministry and work of Rev. Lisa Vaughn and the team that brought the Vital Church Maritimes 2014 Conference to fruition in February. I rejoice in the affirmations and challenges received through the presentations and workshops. I rejoice in what was made clear to and through the almost 80 people who gathered – that the Holy Spirit is moving powerfully and wonderfully in our midst; that our leaders, clergy and lay, are listening to their communities and are experimenting with a variety of new initiatives to reach people with the gospel message; and, that our church has a future and we have much work to do. So again, I rejoice.”
