Toronto Conference

Montreal Conference




Our Speaker

Bishop Fraser Lawton was born in Saskatoon, and grew up in an active Anglican home. His parents encountered the “renewal movement” in the 70’s. Fraser’s experience of the Holy Spirit began as a child: he has fond memories of several Anglican Renewal West conferences. He felt God’s call to ordained ministry at a young age, and entered Emmanuel and St. Chad seminary in Saskatoon directly after completing his BSc.

He served his whole ministry in the Diocese of Athabasca, the diocese covering the North 1/3 of the Province of Alberta. He was ordained priest in 1994 and became Rector of St. Thomas, parish in 1996, the new second Anglican Church in the oil-boom city Fort McMurray. He led an effective ministry in this young parish which always included music and powerful youth ministry. He describes his worship style as contemporary/charismatic: ministry is always an adventure! He was elected Bishop and consecrated in January 2010. His priorities are healing ministry, encouragement in the parishes and working with youth. He is the youngest Canadian Anglican Bishop.

Fraser is married to Veronica, and they have four children, two of whom are still at home, ranging from 13 to 21 years of age. He and his wife Veronica have been involved in parish music ministry, including forming a band together for a short time, since high school.

Fraser is a sports fan (Go Oilers!), following CFL, hockey and F1 auto racing.

Fraser attended and has been a leader on 6 Anglican Renewal Ministries clergy leadership training events and a member of the ARM Board for 2 years.
