Festival of Faith Widget GraphicThe United Church of Canada’s 43rd General Council

Please note the service time has changed to start at 9:45 am (rather than 10am). Also, my understanding is we will be sitting on bleachers, so you may want to bring a cushion.

The 43rd General Council of The United Church of Canada runs July 21 ~ 27th, 2018 at DurhamCollege/University of Ontario Institute of Technology, in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. The theme is “Risking Faith, Daring Hope.”

It kicks of with the Festival of Faith ~ July 21 & 22. All are welcome!
