Jubilee United Church Plans for the Future!
January 19, 2017
Jubilee United Church came into existence on January 1, 2017 with the amalgamation of South Burnaby United Church and West Burnaby United Church.
On January 15th the first congregational meeting was held with the specific intention of electing members to the Transitional Council (governing body), Ministry & Personnel Committee, and Trustees. Seventeen (17) members of the congregation were elected to these positions.
The congregation also voted on recommendations of the Ministry & Profile Search that A) the call of The Rev. Graham Brownmiller be continued as the Lead Minister, and that B) a vacancy be declared for a part-time Order of Ministry Team Minister Position which will not be posted or filled until sufficient funds are in place to do so.
The congregation is currently situated at the Rumble campus of Jubilee United Church and await the continued development at the Sussex campus. Currently we are anticipating demolition of the Sussex campus in the summer of 2017; to begin building in early 2018. That means that we will be looking forward to the Sussex campus being open in mid-to-late 2019.
When the Sussex campus is completed, the congregation will be determining how the two campuses are used. We plan to use both campuses for ministry and mission in the South Slopes of Burnaby and Metrotown.
It is an exciting time in the life of this congregation! Thanks be to God!
