Mission Council meets this weekend

The United Reformed Church’s Mission Council is meeting at the High Leigh Conference Centre in Hertfordshire from 12 to 14 May 2017.

Mission Council is the executive body of the General Assembly, and meets twice a year to reflect on and make decisions about the day-to-day life of the Church. Items on the agenda for this meeting include a debate and decision on the future of the Windermere Centre; the Church’s context for mission, with reflection on the coming General Election and on our commitment to God’s creation, together with a paper from the synod moderators, on ‘where is God calling the URC?’.  All Mission Council papers are now available online.

The URC communications team will be reporting on Mission Council. The news pages and Facebook page will include updates on the main decisions made throughout the meeting, with a daily report being posted after the close of business each day, and a full report planned for inclusion in the June issue of Digest in Reform magazine. Please be aware that news on the future of the Windermere Centre will not be reported until early next week, so that the people who work in the Centre can hear it first.
