This is an invitation to leaders across the church to give input into the development of a 2022‒2024 Strategic Plan for The United Church of Canada, with particular shape and direction of the work of the General Council Office.
I am grateful for the leadership role you play in the church. I would appreciate hearing your wisdom, insight, and perspectives through participation in a Moderator’s Town Hall. Two opportunities are “friendly” to western time zones, and I invite you to register to attend one. Please feel free to also pass this invitation on to someone else from your region or community who would make an important contribution. I am reaching out to you as a person in leadership, but the participation and insight of all members of The United Church of Canada is welcome. The sessions will offer an opportunity to hear about the context of this plan and to give high-level input to strategic direction.
These events will be two and a half hours. Please register for only one session.
