February 27th & 28th
Ryerson United Church
842 Main Street E

TrueCity is a movement of churches unified by a shared commitment to the Gospel of Jesus, serving together for the good of the city. We long to see the people of Hamilton embrace that Gospel because it is Good News – addressing our culture’s most urgent needs, and answering our culture’s deepest questions. Each TrueCity church has its preferred ways to share that Gospel that are unique, familiar, and distinct from other churches. Now after ten years, we wonder: How’s that going for us?

As we take up Jesus’ commission to make disciples, we wrestle not only with what we’re supposed to say, but how we’re supposed to say it.

At this year’s TrueCity conference, we invite you to join us as we consider the importance of sharing the Gospel with others and doing so in ways that are culturally appropriate. How might we benefit from a shared language and methodology around evangelism? We hope you’ll join us as we find out together.

Registration Fees:

Early Bird Special (Paid before February 15) – $25
Regular Price (Paid after February 15) – $30
