ChurchHub.ca is part of a significant shift in the life of our church and how we live out our call to ministry and discipleship. It is both a policy that was passed by General Council to be “regularized as the required process for ministry personnel and communities of faith to search for calls and appointments” and the support structure for communication between the denomination, ministry personnel, communities of faith and members who participate in regional and denominational ministry. 

All Ministry Personnel and Pastoral Charge Communities of Faith have now received an invitation to join ChurchHub. If you or your community haven’t received your invitation, we may have an outdated email. Please email ministry@united-church.ca with your updated information.
