We've kept registration rates very low to ensure the conference is affordable. However, these rates likely will not cover our costs. For those who can afford more, the registration process will include an opportunity to make a donation to help us meet expenses.
Some may still struggle with the costs, however. So, we suggest ANiC parishes consider fund raising events to help defray costs for parishioners wishing to attend. If you require financial assistance but are not able to get help from your parish, you can apply for a bursary by contacting the Rev Dr Trevor Walters at 604 855-9315 or email.
Please review the conference schedule. The Friday evening and Saturday afternoon services are “open”. There is no need to register and no admission charge if you are attending only these services. Friday evening is focused on youth ministry and the Saturday afternoon service is the main celebration and commissioning service with Archbishop Gregory Venables.
The primary conference hotel Coast Tsawwassen Inn is now full. If you require hotel lodging, we suggest you book at Delta Town and Country Inn. Please make your booking by calling toll-free 1-888-777-1266, and stating that you wish the group rate for the “Compelled by Christ’s Love” conference. This rate is $99 plus tax. The cut-off date for this rate is April 15. Again, this is not a large hotel – but is the closest to the conference venue now that the primary hotel is full. We will provide shuttle transportation between this hotel and the conference church for those who do not have their own transportation.
As much as possible, we encourage you to make your own transportation arrangements.
Airport - If you are arriving at the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), and are not planning to rent a car for your time in Vancouver, we will be coordinating taxi service - arranging for 2-3 people per taxi - to and from the airport. There will be an additional charge of $40/person for this two-way transportation between the conference hotel and the airport. (Or $20 for one-way transport between the airport and the conference hotel.) More information will be provided closer to the conference date detailing these arrangements.
If you are not using the conference hotel, please make your own transportation arrangements. If you are being billeted, your hosts may be able to provide transportation.
Ferry – If you are coming into the BC Ferry Terminal in Tsawwassen, the Coast Tsawwassen Inn offers a free shuttle for guests staying at that hotel.
If you have particular transportation concerns, please email us as soon as possible. We will do our best to arrange to assist you. Again, if you will not have your own transportation and are not being billeted, we encourage you to book at the recommended conference hotel to facilitate travel to the conference venue.
To minimize costs, we suggest you purchase your plane ticket on a seat sale. However, if you are not able to do that, we have negotiated a special conference discount for regular fare flights to Vancouver on WestJet. The discount gives you 10% off the best available regular fare at the time of booking and is good during the period April 22-29.
