United Church of Canada  

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.

To: All Clergy, Pastoral Charges, Outreach Ministries; East and West Districts
From: Rev. Faith March-MacCuish, for the Moderator’s Visitation Committee
Re: Moderator’s 2017 Visit

I am happy to inform our Pastoral Charges and Outreach Ministries that our Moderator, The Right Rev. Jordan Cantwell, will be making an official visit to the Newfoundland and Labrador Conference from October 12-18, 2017. The expectation of the Moderator to “quicken the hearts” of the faithful is one that she is taking seriously and with some intentionality. In a letter regarding visits to Conferences, the Moderator has named the following as a focus for her visits:
 She is particularly interested in visiting communities of faith who have not had a visit from the Moderator in the recent past, or for whom a visit from the Moderator would be especially meaningful.
 The Moderator is always looking for opportunities to connect with youth. Therefore, if you could pass on an invitation to the youth and young adult networks in your Conference to determine where she might engage with them it would help to facilitate the process.
 The Moderator spent two hours visiting with the Chaplain General recently. It was a rich conversation about military chaplaincy and the value United Church of Canada ministers bring to this ministry. We also discussed possible opportunities for the Moderator to meet chaplains and to gain some exposure to a base. One of those opportunities we identified is while visiting Conferences. It could give her exposure to military chaplaincy and raise the profile of these ministries in your Conferences.
 One of the priorities of the Moderator is a commitment to indigenous justice and right relations. One of the visions she has for this work is to visit as many First Nations congregations as possible in the hopes of providing a ministry of presence and accompaniment.
 It may also interest you to know that it is the Moderator’s intention to visit as many of the francophone and bilingual ministries as possible with the same purpose in order to continue to live into the commitment of The United Church of Canada to become a bilingual church.With that in mind, the Moderator’s Visitation Committee are inviting Pastoral Charges, Outreach Ministries, Conference Gatherings, and Districts to send invitations to have the Moderator visit them in their context.

Please email your invitation to the Moderator’s Visitation Committee c/o prior to May 1, 2017. Please include in your invitation the date preferred, the place and time of the visit, as well as the details of who would be attending and the purpose of the visit/event.
Once all invitations have been received the Committee will be in touch with you to confirm if we are able to accommodate your request.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and invitation for the Newfoundland and Labrador Moderator’s Official Visit.
