Presbytery and Conference coming to an end. . . . As we move into Region 8 and new governance, we need to think clearly about the future.

Blyth United and Brussels United are inviting you to a night of ‘Dreaming’ at Blyth United Church on October 30th at 7:30pm.

This gathering is meant as a time to think of all the possibilities that would help us be the Church we are meant to be. It is a guided time to dream of ways to worship and work in our community and into the next number of years.

As we all move forward into the changes that are happening in our church and in our communities we will have to do things differently.
