Renewal Fellowship’s mission is “to lead each other and The Presbyterian Church in Canada to authentic Biblical thinking, powerful Spirit-led prayer, and effective Gospel witness.”
In practical terms, we’re carrying that out two ways: leading/facilitating prayer and providing strategic pastoral care.
Renewal Café are small group gatherings held via Zoom which are typically centred on a specific question or theme. Each Café is based on a specific Scripture, has a time of devotion and opportunities for sharing, discussion, and prayer. Café’s guiding verse is Hebrews 10:25 – “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”
Listening Ear Here is a pool of mature believers who meet online (or in person if logistics allow) with individuals who need a listening ear. It’s not therapy, counseling, or mentorship. It’s an effort to facilitate a community and encourage believers. It’s a ministry for the listener as well as the speaker. If you need to talk about where you’re at in your walk of faith, if you have questions, or if you just need to “unpack,” we can pair you with a listener. This ministry is for adults of all ages and stages of life.
Our daily Prayer Calendar (published as a whole quarterly) under the leadership of Linda Shaw continues to find its way into the hands of believers who need encouragement and support.
Pray for GA is a dedicated campaign in the four weeks leading up to General Assembly which includes online prayer rooms praying prior to and during each sederunt. We started this in 2021 and it was repeated in 2022. It picks up from all the in-person prayer rooms we organized when General Assembly was held in person. We are looking forward to a return to in-person GA in 2023.
