Gather with other Christians to learn about creation and climate care
Humanity is facing three interconnected crises: biodiversity loss, climate change, and poverty and inequality. Many of us struggle to find our role in addressing these crises. We struggle with theological questions, practical problems, and simply loving our places well.
We want to ask these questions with you!
Will you join us at Consider the Lillies, a conference to connect and resource Christians in the great call to creation care? Keep reading to learn more about the conference.
We hope to see you there!
Consider the Lilies
Consider the Lilies is A Rocha’s annual conference for Christians and church leaders in and around Winnipeg, Manitoba, who want to learn about, discuss, workshop, and commit to creation care.
A Rocha in Manitoba
We are part of A Rocha Canada, an organization committed to living out God’s call to care for creation, and equipping others to do likewise. We have been doing this work in Canada for over 20 years! If you want to learn more about our organization, head here, and if you want to learn more about what we’re up to in Manitoba specifically, head here.
Our Community Partner
We are partnering with Westwood Community Church to facilitate this year’s conference.
Who is this event for?
If you are interested in how Christianity and caring for the earth intersect, this conference is for you! We’re providing robust theological education, and equipping Christians and church leaders to care for creation in their own unique contexts.

Absolutely! The more the merrier. We would love to have you – that said, you will have to find your own accommodations if you plan on staying in Winnipeg overnight.
Yes, this event is for you, too. That said, we recommend doing a little reading/listening to find out more about what creation care is before attending the conference – we just don’t want you to feel confused or left out!
