St. Andrew’s United Church/ Seven Summits Centre for Learning
Seven Summits Centre for Learning (under Visions for Small Schools Society) has signed a letter of intent with the Community in Faith Pastoral Charge (Rossland/Trail United Church) to lease the Red Roofed Church in Rossland for their new learning space. Renovations are underway, and they will be moving in late August and starting classes in September in the new space!
This is an exciting step forward to fulfill the Centre’s mission to ensure Seven Summits is an affordable and diverse learning centre that nurtures local, Canadian and international grade 8-12 students in a supportive, flexible, experiential and academically-focused environment.
CIF Pastoral Charge will still use the main church area for its services on Sundays, making it true community co-operation that works for both organizations!
While the search for a minister continues, Rev. George Meier has been appointed by BC Conference to a part-time ministry in the CIF Pastoral Charge. He will facilitate a process to help the congregation of Trail and Rossland consider their future in ministry in their communities.
Communities in Faith Pastoral Charge (Rossland/Trail) requested BC Conference to declare a vacancy for a part-time (20 hours per week) Minister effective July 1, 2016.
BC Conference has posted the Ministry Profile and Search Report on their website Vacancy list for Communities in Faith Pastoral Charge.
We are searching for a congregational minister to provide worship and some pastoral care; who is flexible, guiding us to new ideas. We are two congregations moving towards amalgamation so need someone with skills or experience to guide us and support the congregations through this process. This would include help to develop a new Mission and Vision for the new congregation.
