The national United Church, ‘General Council 44’, proposed to remove barriers to an “Autonomous National Indigenous Organization” within the UCC.

The change requires each community of faith to vote, by its governing body, by March 2024, with non-votes counted as ‘no’ votes.

To engage our members and to inform our board’s vote, planned for January 2024,  participating in  a workshop on September 24  is a next step
