One Order of Ministry?
News
Sunday, 15 May 2016 08:44
The last General Council took action to begin a discussion about establishing a single order of ministry. The Canadian Theological Journal, Touchstone, is hosting a conversation about this subject online. We invite all Presbyters and anyone interested to follow this discussion, which has already become a lively debate on the future of ministry within the United Church. You can find this under "Blog" on the Touchstone website by clicking here. At the present time we have several kinds of accountable ministries, including ordained, diaconal and designated lay. If the church so decides there will be only one order of ministry. A remit will be coming for presbyteries and pastoral charges to agree or disagree with these changes.

The following message comes from Nora Sanders, General Secretary of the Church. "The 42nd General Council made major decisions to transform the structure of The United Church of Canada.  These decisions do not take effect unless the broader church approves through the “remit” process.  The eight remits, with background information about them, are now available at GC42.ca/remits. We need to hear from pastoral charges on five of these proposals, and from presbyteries on all eight. Visitors to GC42.ca/remits will find my introduction to the remits, along with links to comprehensive study guides for each, and information about the voting process and timing. By spring, information about webinars and video presentations will also be available there. Please read the material online, then send us your pastoral charge or presbytery’s decision on the paper ballots being mailed out in the next week. Church members at any level can email questions to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
