Church resources

Since 1946, the work of CLWR has been possible because of churches in Canada partnering in mission.

Your efforts to help your congregation engage with our work are so important—thank you! Please use these resources however you're able, and let us know what else would help your church join together in the work of compassion and justice.

Heidi Van Schaik, the Church Relations Manager at CLWR, is working with congregations across Canada in finding ways for members to engage with CLWR’s mission. Feel free to reach out to her with questions or comments at heidi@clwr.org or 204-631-0504 or 1-800-661-2597 ext 204. 

If you'd like us to send you print copies of brochures, posters or other resources listed below, please email us at clwr@clwr.org!
