of the
Synod of Alberta and the Territories
Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
June 16 – 18, 2016 
University of Alberta, Augustana Campus; Camrose, Alberta

The Sixteenth Biennial Convention will be held June 16-18, 3016 at University of Alberta – Augustana Campus, Camrose  (4901 – 46 Avenue).
Together we will worship, receive reports on the life of the church in this Synod, conduct the necessary business, and support each other in ministry.

The Theme will be “Liberated by God’s grace”, with the sub-themes of Salvation – not for sale’, ‘Human beings – not for sale’ and ‘Creation – not for sale.

A letter will be sent to each congregation outlining convention fees and the number of delegates they are allowed to send.  As well, all rostered leaders not currently in call to a congregation, and retired rostered leaders, will receive an information letter in the mail at their home or place of work.

If you have not received this letter by March 1, 2016, or are unsure of your congregation’s fee, please contact the Synod office.


In 2015, the National Church adopted a new governance structure that included provisions to reduce the size of national conventions. Each synod was tasked with the responsibility of determining how it would elect its delegates.
