Effective June 30, this year, the Iroquois United Church, which is currently a one point charge, will become a two point charge when the congregation joins together with the Brinston-Hulbert United Church.
“Until then, everything will continue as is,” said Sandy Decker, who co-chairs the Iroquois United Church board with John Marston.
Once the parishes are united at the end of June, becoming the Iroquois-Matilda United Church, the plan is to continue to hold Sunday service in Iroquois weekly.
A second Sunday service will take place alternate weeks at the Brinston and Hulbert churches. Specific details about the timing of the services, and more, will be determined over the coming months.
Congregations of United Churches across the Seaway Valley Presbytery have been visioning the future of the churches. Part of that process has involved the churches entering into discussions with each other and planning their futures together.
