Rev. Marta ValentinFebruary Newsletter: "Acompañamiento ~ Turning As One"
by Rev. Marta Valentín, Ministerial Transitions Lead

Right now, for some congregations in our region and around the country life is simply "the business of ministry as usual." As we move deeper into 2016, we are busy doing church in all the ways we know and love, finding newer/bigger/better ways to welcome the stranger among us and bring them into our circle of mindful caring. We are chugging along, accepting the challenges that unfold before us as stepping-stones into a new and unseen part of the journey. We are stretching our hands across aisles and pews to touch each member of the family with a knowing force held by our Unitarian Universalist center of gravity.

Registration is OPEN for Winter & Early Spring Events!
Register now for Events, Trainings & Workshops this winter and early spring. Offerings include half-day and full-day workshops for lay leaders and religious professionals, and multi-day trainings for religious educators. Teams of four or more members from the same church are encouraged to attend workshops together, so the learning can take root and be shared more effectively back at your home church.

6 States of the New England Region

Regionalization in New England has been realized. Our transformation began several years ago, in careful steps and stages, with a vision to streamline governance, create efficiencies, and more closely align mission across all districts of our association. Through covenantal relationships in our work, we have journeyed together and have now arrived.

We are four districts, six states, that that are served by a single integrated staff team, with expertise in every area of congregational life. We have offices in Concord, NH and Watertown, MA, and staff physically spread out across New England.

The core purpose of our work is

  • to deepen INTERCONNECTION by cultivating relationships between and among congregations;
  • to grow INNOVATION by inspiring and coaching new and innovative models of "doing church;" and
  • to enhance IMPACT by midwifing existing congregations to their next level of impact.

Our program staff are often the first and primary source of support, counsel and information for lay and professional leaders. Contact us for any of the following

Program staff also designs and delivers learning events. We've planned more than 30 trainings, workshops, and programs for the 2015-2016 church year. These programs are designed to broaden knowledge, develop leadership skills, spark ideas and connect members of sibling congregations with one another. We hope to see you sometime this year.
