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.
The people here live in places like Lobster Cove, Leading Tickles, Come by Chance, and Goose Bay. The people here can be described as humble people who live off the land and the sea. The Newfoundland and Labrador Conference embraces a geography covering a vast land mass of 405,212 km2. Comprised of the "Big Land" Labrador and the island of Newfoundland with a population of approximately 514,409.
The Conference is part of the wider United Church of Canada, and joined the United Church before it joined Canada and has its own Act of Parliament. We do not have presbyteries like the other Conferences in the United Church. We have Districts.
There are two Districts, the East and the West. The Conference has 87 Pastoral Charges and five District-recognized ministries in chaplaincy services. There are 200 congregations and they are located throughout the province, both urban and rural. The East District is comprised of the Northeast Avalon to the town of Terra Nova. The West District begins at Glovertown to Port-Aux-Basques and all places in between, as well as Labrador.
We are very proud to be part of The United Church of Canada and feel very blessed to live out our ministry in this unique place.
