Welcome to the website of the Vermont Conference of the United Church of Christ, the Church that believes in a Still-Speaking God and where there is room at Christ’s table for everyone, no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey. Our conference is comprised of 137 individual congregations spread across Vermont. Our congregations range from “micro” sized up to congregations large enough to have multiple staff and more than one worship service each week. You can find a directory of our churches including a “find a church” above.
The Vermont conference has a mission: to equip our churches for Christ’s mission and ministry today and tomorrow. We provide events, coaching, and connections to the wider Church so our pastors and churches can grow in vitality. We look not to the past but to the present and to the future as we seek ways to be faithful followers of Christ and cherish the ties among our congregations, and within our Associations and Conference, with the wider UCC, and with our ecumenical neighbors and our interfaith sisters and brothers.
As a denomination, the United Church of Christ is committed to working for a just world for all. There are many ways to be involved in this important work and our churches are active and engaged in their local communities as well as on state, national and global levels. A few of those issues where our churches are active include: climate change, a moral economy, prison justice, equal rights for those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and sexual identities. Many of our congregations have a relationship with churches and people in many places around the world. Churches offer community suppers to support building relationships, they run food shelves and feeding programs and other projects to alleviate food insecurity. These are just few of the ways we seek justice because we follow Jesus the Christ.
