On Saturday, October 17, 2015, several hundred people gathered at St. Andrew’s United Church in Niagara Falls, Ontario, to celebrate and witness the signing of the Full Communion Agreement between the United Church of Christ (USA) and The United Church of Canada.

The agreement, which had been approved this summer by the 30th General Synod of the United Church of Christ (USA) and the 42nd General Council of The United Church of Canada, declares both denominations’ openness to co-operation in terms of witness, mission, worship, and the proclamation of a common faith.
