GC43 Opening Worship: Sing and Pray with 2,000 People

Something special is happening at the 43rd General Council (GC43) this year. Moderator Jordan Cantwell invites you and your congregation to the opening worship service on Sunday, July 22 at 9:45 a.m. Eastern Time.

Imagine how wonderful it would be to sing and pray with up to 2,000 people!

We hope visitors from churches in and nearby Oshawa, Ont. as well as people from across Canada will join us. Please consider relocating your service on Sunday, July 22 and worship with General Council commissioners, visitors, and international and ecumenical guests.

If you are unable to attend the opening worship in person, follow the service online with the GC43 livestream on the United Church YouTube channel.

All Native Circle and Bay of Quinte Conferences are co-hosting GC43. This unique collaboration will be beautifully embodied in our opening celebrations, and reflected throughout the week.

Let’s celebrate God’s presence together.

The 43rd General Council is being held on the campus of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) located at 2000 Simcoe St. North, Oshawa, Ont., from Saturday, July 21, through Friday, July 27.

We hope you will be able to join us in person or online for some (or all) of this exciting week.
