Newfoundland and Labrador Conference

With joy in our hearts and a song on our lips we,

the Newfoundland and Labrador conference of The United Church of Canada,

believe that we are called by God to love and serve others. 

Through our various shared ministries in the name of Jesus Christ,

we are called to uphold the gifts and skills in each other;

to honour differences;

to be accepting of change while honouring heritage and traditions;

to seek justice

and through all of this to know that we are not alone. 

Thanks be to God

About Us

Let your adventure in ministry begin here in the Newfoundland and Labrador Conference. This is the most easterly Conference within The United Church of Canada. A Conference whose borders are the same as the provincial borders. It's a place that Microsoft recognizes as having its own time zone. And why not. It's where the sun rises first. It's the newest province with an incredible past.

Dear Friends,
I write to inform you of the passing of Rev. Bobby Fillier. Many of you will know Rev. Fillier as a former staff of the Newfoundland and Labrador Conference, who also served many Pastoral Charges in our Conference. Rev. Fillier died peacefully at home in Lakefield, Ontario, as were his wishes, early on Monday, November 28, 2016.

Funeral details and obituary will follow.
Please keep the Fillier family in your thoughts and prayers at this time.

Four Important Remit Updates Aim to Provide Clarity on the Proposals before the Church

 

Some new (and some revised) material is available on GC42.ca/remits for pastoral charge boards/councils and presbyteries as they deliberate on the eight remits now before the church.

  • slide presentations are available for remit 2 (Elimination of Transfer and Settlement) and remit 3 (Office of Vocation). These slide presentations could be used to guide discussion about the remits.
  • for information about the other six remits, you can read through our frequently asked questions. That document spans all the proposals being voted on, and it has just been updated.
  • two of our remit study guides for the remits have been updated, to correct inaccurate information. The remit 2 study guide now states that transfer and settlement have been optional for candidates for ordination and commissioning since 2011. The remit 8 study guide now states that a document about how people see and understand church membership is expected in early January.
  • a letter from General Secretary Nora Sanders reminds pastoral charge boards/councils and presbyteries about the importance of remits, and how the changes that they could bring will be fundamental to how our organization works.

To ask questions about any of the remits, please direct your query to .
