2013 Conference

Your Only Comfort
Celebrating 450 Years with the Heidelberg Catechism


Third Annual Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary Lecture Series

Since it was first published in 1563, the Heidelberg Catechism has been cherished by Christians around the world. Its warm, pastoral summary of the holy gospel has guided generations of God's people, teaching them about their only true comfort in life and in death. On January 18-19, 2013, a conference will be hosted by CRTS at the Burlington Ebenezer Canadian Reformed church to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the Catechism and explore how this confessional treasure can continue to serve the church for generations to come.

Something New: Satellite Conferences
In addition to the main conference in Burlington, Ontario, various locations in Canada and the USA are hosting a satellite conference which will receive a simulcast transmission of some of the keynote speeches, in addition to workshops.  For more information, and to see if a satellite conference is happening in your area, click here.
