The Manual, 2019, is now available online. It is effective January 1, 2019.
Since its first edition in 1928, The Manual has been a valuable resource for members and organized bodies of The United Church of Canada. The new 2019 edition incorporates remits approved during the 2015–2018 triennium and enacted by the 43rd General Council 2018, as well as additional changes approved by the 43rd General Council 2018 and the Executive of the General Council.
The Manual is fully searchable and includes hyperlinks to the United Church website. When opened in Adobe Acrobat, it is bookmarked for navigation, and the table of contents is also linked.
The United Church is moving toward digital delivery for church documents, including the General Council workbook and the policy and procedures handbooks on our website. There is currently no plan to make print copies of The Manual available for sale.
