Make God's Love and Justice Real

Make God's Love and Justice Real

We commit to making God’s love and justice real by loving our neighbors, children, and all of creation through our collective work, such as seeking racial, economic, environmental, and LGBTQ justice.

We believe that it is our call to “live the love and justice of Jesus.” Based on both the established commitments of our three historic Conferences and our aspirational priorities as a new Conference, the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ, at its first Annual Meeting on November 2, 2019, pledges in covenant:

  • To be an Open and Affirming Conference;
  • To be a Just Peace Conference;
  • To be an Accessible to All Conference;
  • To be an Immigrant Welcoming Conference;
  • To work for climate justice and the restoration of God’s creation on which all life depends;
  • To advocate for economic and restorative justice;
  • To be a multi-cultural multi-racial church working to eradicate racism in all of its forms, both within the church and in the structures of our society and world;
  • To advance immigrant justice and human rights for all people;
  • To oppose all forms of sexism and violence against women, especially women of color.

We recognize that these are expressions of both identity and intention, and we commit to align our resources and our efforts with these priorities. We encourage our local churches and other covenant partners to do the same.

Over the coming months, those working on these issues in our conference will be working to improve and consolidate the resources in these areas. In the meantime, you can find information by following these links to our historic conference sites:
