Deacons serve by leading and equipping the church to minister to its members and the world in a rich diversity of ministries, awakening compassion, demonstrating mercy, seeking justice, and collaborating with God’s Spirit for the transformation of persons and communities. 

Come to a time of meeting, sharing and learning from one another! All deacons, including wise, former deacons and prospective/future deacons, are invited to our annual Deacon’s Dialogue gathering being held at Maranatha CRC in Bowmanville, ON.

Relying on the Holy Spirit, Diaconal Ministries Canada exists to inspire, empower and equip deacons as they animate their churches to join in God’s transforming work in communities across Canada.

So… we are planning a Deacon’s Gathering for churches in Classis Niagara . Together we’ll spend time sharing stories and best practices so that we can learn from each other. Because we’re great on our own but we’re BETTER together!

We’ll have conversations regarding the work of deacons and more specifically, about deacons at Classis. THIS IS FOR ALL NEW and SEASONED DEACONS!
