Centre for Practical Theology

Centre for Practical Theology


Bringing together people, passion and practice.



In September 2019, CPT became an official ministry of the Metropolitan United Church. Our mission is to gather congregational leaders for networking, education, and research that equips us for Christian ministry in our communities. CPT is led by our director and co-founder, Rev. Dr. Jeff Crittenden.

The Centre for Practical Theology (CPT) exists for people passionate about the intersection of theology and practice. It is a shared place for the community to gather, connect, learn, worship and belong. CPT is a missional congregation in London, Ontario.
