Developing leaders in a church-starting ecosystem
Cyclical PCC is a church-planting support initiative within The Presbyterian Church in Canada, in partnership with Cyclical Inc. It is designed to encourage presbyteries and leaders within our denomination take first steps towards beginning new worshipping communities.
By participating in this program you will be led through a three-step process of discerning call and vision, taking initial steps towards living out the vision and establishing a sustainable new ministry.
Participants in this initiative will take part in an assessment to help them discern gifting in the area of church planting. Participants will receive training designed to equip leaders for the challenges of starting new worshipping communities. Participants will also be connected with other leaders from across the PCC who are also beginning their journey towards starting a new worshipping community.
What is a new worshipping community?
New Worshipping Communities are innovative and creative expressions of ministry that are responsive to the work of the Holy Spirit. These ministries take many forms: dinner churches, sports ministries, house churches, traditional church plants, café ministries, really any kind of gathering centered on Word and Sacrament that reaches new disciples and calls people to walk closely with Jesus.
The Amazing Journey of a Simple Shoebox Gift
Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on project that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes packed by Canadians.
It all starts with you! From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need around the world. It is one way to remind children suffering as a result of war, poverty, famine, disease, and disaster that they are loved and not forgotten.
Join what God’s doing and pack a shoebox.

Unity Within the Church
The church lives to praise God. We have no higher calling than to offer the worship that belongs to God day by day, Sunday by Sunday. Through the preaching of the Word and the celebration of the Sacraments, in praise, prayer, teaching and fellowship, God sustains the life of the church.
