The Kanata Centre for Worship and Global Song at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary understands that renewal in the church and in the life of discipleship is shaped and sustained through inspired worship and the prophetic call to do justice. The Kanata Centre is committed to just this renewal in worship and the Life of Christ's community. In the culturally diverse and global community that has become our world, the Kanata Centre goal is to help facilitate the encounter of worship practices and global songs to enrich the life and the public witness of the Church.
The Kanata Centre for Worship and Global Song was born out of the gift of music and worship from the churches of the Global South. This gift of joy and lament is a strong witness to the profound connection we share to the land, with each other, and with God's good creation. It challenges people of faith in Canada to wrestle with our response to the One who is calling us to be in this place and to act in this moment, and leading us towards the horizon of the Reign of God.
