Effective transition after a settled minister leaves starts with a collective review of how the congregation has been shaped and formed. It is a way to claim and honour our past, our major milestones and evolution and engage and honour our griefs and conflicts. It is done in a spirit of community and mutual respect.
You are invited to come to Hewett Centre to contribute to the UCV Congregational History Wall. A member of the Ministerial Transition Team will be there along with pens and big sticky notes for you to write your recollections and affix them at appropriate points. Photo contributions are also welcome.
Due to the COVID-19 guidelines for Hewett Centre, we are limited to 14 congregants at a time, during a one-hour session. You must book your session ahead. Masks and social distancing are required. The doors and windows will be open, so you will want to dress accordingly.
This may be the first time you have been to the campus in awhile. You are welcome to come early or stay after and enjoy the campus grounds, walk the labyrinths, view the new benches and distance visit with one another.
We will also soon have a virtual (on-line) Congregational History Wall for those who prefer to contribute at-a-distance.
We look forward to welcoming you!
Ministerial Transition Team
