We believe that God’s radical hospitality calls Manitou Conference to:
- Journey into new ways of being church and,
- Understand and engage with the struggle for dignity and economic justice for our neighbours and God’s Creation

What’s New on the Site:
The Manitou Conference office has sustained significant damage in a fire on September 25th, 2015, that police have deemed arson.
A temporary office has been established at Emmanuel United Church at 395 Lakeshore Avenue in North Bay (P1A 2C5) until sometime in mid-Novmeber. We hope to return to Omond Memorial once the renovations are complete, although it will be to another area of the building, as our offices will not be ready until next spring.
Our phone number is the same and messages can be left for staff at (705) 474-3350. Due to where the office now presides in Emmanuel, we ask that you please call first before coming to: a) ensure someone is there, and b) so that someone will be at the door to greet you.
Please continue to send mail to:
319 McKenzie Avenue
North Bay, ON P1B 7E3
We are grateful for the many prayers and good wishes from across the Conference and the wider Church. Thank you for your patience in these challenging days!
