This summer, the 30th General Synod of the United Church of Christ USA, meeting in Cleveland, Ohio, and the 42nd General Council of The United Church of Canada, meeting in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador, approved a full communion agreement. This agreement declares our openness to cooperation in terms of witness, mission, worship, and the proclamation of a common faith with the United Church of Christ.

Everyone is invited to join the celebration on October 17 at 6:30 p.m. ET at St. Andrew's United Church, Niagara Falls, Ontario, in person or online.

Congregations throughout The United Church of Canada and the United Church of Christ are asked to share in a common prayer on Sunday, October 18, to celebrate this agreement.

Two bulletin inserts are available for congregational use on October 18, which can be found below. You can also find the Full Communion Celebration Bulletin for the 17 October 2015 Celebration at St. Andrew’s, Niagara Falls, ON
