Remit Enactment Means Major Structural Changes for the Church

Yesterday afternoon GC43 enacted seven remits that originated at GC42 three years ago. Remit enactment represents one of the biggest structural changes in the history of The United Church of Canada. Before reaching the floor of GC43, a strong majority of pastoral charges and presbyteries voted in favour of the remits. The full news piece is available at this link:  https://generalcouncil43.ca/news/remit-enactment-means-major-structural-changes-church

“Now the stage is set for a new structure that will take us into the years ahead,” says David Allen, Remit Implementation Project Leader with the United Church. “We can look forward to how the new structures will reflect our faithfulness to God in the future.”
