Remits are an important part of improving how we do God’s work (October 2016)

The next eight months will be a pivotal period in the life of The United Church of Canada. With the deadlines to vote on seven of the eight remits quickly approaching, we have a real opportunity to transform the church so it continues to play an important role in our society. Considering what is at stake, it is crucial that all pastoral charge boards/councils and presbyteries study the remit proposals and cast a vote. A wealth of background information is available online at, including study guides, informational videos, webinar discussions, and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs). 

Please read this October 2016 reminder from Nora Sanders, General Secretary.

The Council of Glebe - St. James would especially request that members read about remit #1 as Council will need to vote on this and will inform Ottawa Presbytery before June 30, 2017.
