General Council 44 Has Been Postponed

General Council 44, previously slated for July 2021 in Calgary, AB, has been postponed until 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commissioners of the 43rd General Council made this decision at a special electronic meeting held on June 20, 2020. Minutes from this meeting will be posted to the United Church Commons in the coming days.

"As we look forward to hosting GC44 in Calgary, Alberta we also want to be respectful of every person’s health and well-being during this pandemic time," said Sue Brodrick, co-chair of the GC44 Planning Committee. "The GC44 Planning Committee wants this meeting to be a great experience for all Commissioners, global partners, staff, and guests; we anticipate that, by moving GC44 to 2022, we can accomplish this."
