Welcome to Regeneration Works: Places of Faith

Welcome to our new site of the Social Enterprise and partnership between Faith & the Common Good and the National Trust for Canada.

Recognizing that congregations and communities are struggling with an increasing number of at risk places of faith, the National Trust for Canada and Faith & the Common Good, two national not-for-profit organizations, have come together to provide expertise, training, advisory and custom coaching services under the banner Regeneration Works: Places of Faith.

Whether the goal is to keep the doors open or make strategic real estate decisions that serve the faith group and the community, the National Trust and Faith & the Common Good offer hope, inspiration, and solutions, based on our work from across the country. Our approach is national, non-sectarian, interfaith, and interdisciplinary. We bring made-in-Canada strategies that unlock challenging situations and sites, with the ultimate goal of enhancing the social, spiritual, and cultural health of the community.

Working with faith organizations, congregations, property managers, community groups, heritage specialists, or local governments, our multidisciplinary team of experienced practitioners brings proven methodologies for faith property regeneration – all tailored to address the unique challenges faced by faith groups and their communities.
