Welcome to the Southern New England Conference Annual Meeting!
 
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE LETTER, even if you have attended many Annual Meetings.  
 
The pandemic may keep us from gathering in person, but it is no impediment to the Holy Spirit.
 
Our Annual Meeting will be woven through with vibrant worship.  Our justice commitments will be a major focus of plenary sessions.  We will have multiple opportunities to meet in small groups, to build a closer web of relationships across our new Conference.

Come and build our new Conference together!
 
Our Worship Theme will be Luke 2:15 – “And it Came to Pass…” – Living into the Fulfillment of God’s Promises
  
Business to be Conducted: Registration will be open soon! Registration Deadline is May 5, 2021
 
If you are new to on-line meetings, do not fear!  You will have an opportunity to attend a practice Whova session, and technical help will be available. It is possible to attend the meeting by computer, tablet or smartphone.
 
Whova Practice Sessions will be held eight times between April 26th and May 7th.  You must register for a practice session in order to receive the link to attend it.  Please register here.
 
In response to much feedback about our commitment to environmental justice, Delegate Materials will be distributed electronically this year.  There will be no automatic paper mailing of materials to any church or registrant. Those who need paper materials are invited to request them when they register – see the Accessibility section of the Registration form.  In order to receive paper materials, you must register and request them no later than April 30, 2021 by emailing Andrea Bellarosa - bellarosaa@sneucc.org.
 
A Speakout is a 60-second opportunity for a delegate to address the Annual Meeting on a topic of their choice.  As an adaptation to our remote format, Speakout opportunities will be assigned by lottery, and all Speakouts must be recorded and submitted in advance.  More information may be found HERE.
 
Further information and delegate materials are at the website here.  Additional materials will be added in the coming weeks.
 
We hope to see you on May 8th!
