Embracing God’s Future

Established as a process of strategic thinking and prayer discernment, Embracing God’s Future has become the strategic roadmap for the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa. It highlights our Priorities and Practices for our future together as parishes, as a Diocese, and as members of the communities in which we live.

Developed from conversations that were held throughout the Diocese, our prayer forms the basis for Embracing God’s Future and the Priorities and Practices of the Roadmap.

Embracing God’s Future Survey

Now that Embracing God’s Future (EGF) has been part of our Diocesan life for 3 years, Diocesan Council has asked for a review of its progress. Below is the link to a short survey you are invited to complete by May 01. The survey is just one way information will be collected to make a report to Council with findings and recommendations. Responses will be aggregated and no parish or individual or parish will be identified without prior agreement.

The survey will take 5-20 minutes, depending on how much narrative information you want to share.

Members of the review group, Monica Patten, Margot Cameron, Brian Cameron, Simone Hurkmans, Jon Martin and Gay Richardson, appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey regardless of your knowledge and participation in EGF.
