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.

Lest We Forget

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

When I had the privilege to represent the NL Conference on the Trail of the Caribou Spiritual Pilgrimage last year, I was filled with gratitude that I was given the opportunity to walk upon the ground which so many of our young people walked, fought and died so that generations that they would never know would have freedom.

When we were at Beaumont-Hamel, we sang the Ode to Newfoundland and as we sang the words “where once they stood we stand” it was so emotionally overwhelming to be standing in that place, where once our young soldiers stood. The number of graves that were marked “Known Only Unto God” were numerous, too numerous to count. I remember offering a silent prayer for their families and giving thanks to God that even when others do not know us, God does.

I know that our lives are busy and we always make the claim there is never enough time. There is never not enough time to stop and take a moment of silence, or go to a service at a war memorial site, or just stand where you are and give thanks for those who served, those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, those who were forever changed by the horrors of war, those who volunteered and those who still serve. Blessings to you as you remember.

I have attached a prayer from our General Council website for those who might like to use it tomorrow or Sunday.

On this day of Remembrance, O God, we give thanks:

For peacekeepers and pacifists; for those who served on the front lines, and those who protest and march; for those who volunteered and those who waited anxiously at home; for those who hoped that things would get better, and those who could not stand by and wait.

We give thanks for those who believed that the world could be a better place.

We remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, trusting that others could and would carry the torch.

We give thanks for those who were once enemies who have become friends and allies.
