Connect with GC44
As you probably know, General Council 44 will be held completely online for the first time this year. While this means we won't be able to gather in person for General Council as so many of us are used to, it also means there are unique opportunities for those who are not Commissioners, Invited Guests, or Youth Forum members to join in the event and stay connected to GC44 no matter where they are.
Below are some of the ways you can connect online with General Council 44 and follow the proceedings along with a community of United Church people and like-minded followers from across Canada and even around the world.
Observers, visitors, and those keenly interested in the work of the church are invited to sign up for access to all the public proceedings of GC44 on PheedLoop. PheedLoop is a Canadian-based virtual event platform that was selected for its accessibility and English/French translation features. You do not need to download or install anything to use it. Review the calendar of key dates for GC44 and complete your free registration today to reserve your spot.
Proposals, Reports, and Other Documents
The best way to access the most up-to-date documents for the meeting ("the workbook") is to register for PheedLoop. We encourage you to sign up soon as there is a limit on the number of visitors we can accommodate.
The documents are also available on the United Church Commons in the 44th General Council folder. Because of technical issues we're having with the Commons this link won't work if you copy and share it with others. Instead, send them to this page to click on this link. Note: The PheedLoop documents will be updated constantly as needed, while the ones on the Commons will be updated only when they are final, probably in June or July.
