Our Regional Council meeting is coming up June 13-15, and it wouldn’t be a United Church meeting if we didn’t try to do ALL THE THINGS in one go. There are two worship services and one day-long workshop to which you are all invited, in person in Saskatoon, or via livestream on our YouTube channel.

Everyone is also welcome to the full Regional meeting, but you must register as a visitor or delegate.

We ask you to use the links to share these three opportunities  with your community of faith or ministry.  Here is a Powerpoint of each event poster for your community of faith. Please use it, share, and invite! We really hope to see you there.

Moderator’s Flourishing workshop  Saturday June 15 10:00AM-4:00PM

Saskatoon Travelodge and conference centre, 106 Circle Dr W, Saskatoon, Galaxy A and B Conference rooms.
Join our Moderator, the Right Rev. Carmen Lansdowne in this public all-day workshop! United Church folks from across the Region are invited to attend and participate. Here’s the shareable invitation and full details. We also plan to make this accessible on Zoom, but this isn’t guaranteed.

Registration: You don’t need to be a delegate to the full meeting to attend- all are welcome, especially as a team from your community of faith or ministry.  If you’re already registered as a delegate, visitor, or guest, you don’t need to register again. Here’s the Saturday registration form.  Deadline: May 29, because of catering deadlines.
Cost? Free. You will need to pay for lunch if you wish to have it at the hotel, but the day is free. What’s this about? It’s a space to collectively engage questions about how our communities and churches can thrive, instead of just survive.
