1. Maritime Conference Holiday Hours

Maritime Conference Office will be closing for the Christmas holidays on Friday, December 21 at noon. We will reopen as the Regional office on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Voicemail and email will continue to work as normal, and will be responded to promptly upon return to work.  If your concern is particularly urgent during this period, please leave your message with David Hewitt, Executive Secretary, at dhewitt@marconf.ca or 506-536-1334 ext #1.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


2. Marlene Trenholm

Amid the substantial changes in role and function that are occurring at the end of this year, Maritime Conference would like to make special note of Marlene Trenholm. Marlene has worked for Maritime Conference for over 23 years in a variety of roles, and has served the Conference with energy, enthusiasm, professional competence and good humour. Marlene will leave the Conference staff at the end of 2018 and will not be continuing as staff in the new Regions. Please join us in thanking Marlene for her exemplary service, and wishing her well as she transitions to other things!


3. Searching For Gifts and Skills

As we move to our new structure, we will need the gifts, skills, energy and passion of many new people. Is there someone in your congregation who has gifts to offer the wider church? Do you know someone with a passion for justice? youth? stewardship? pastoral relations? Most meetings of our new committees will be by telephone or video conference, and we are searching for people from a wide range of background and skill sets. Maybe it is someone who has never been involved with Presbytery or Conference before. Please encourage them to complete the nominations form, or email their name and contact information to alison.etter@bellaliant.net.
