heartprintsThe United Church Men of Maritime Conference will host the regular biennial men’s event at Trinity-St. Stephen’s United Church in Amherst, Nova Scotia on the weekend of April 23, 2016.  Given the high degree of interest in welcoming refugees to Canada from Syria and other African countries, our UC Men’s theme for 2016 is “Heartprints” and in the spirit of Maritime Hospitality is open to men of all denominations.

Registration begins at 9:00 AM, with things getting underway at 10:00 AM. (Registration and meet and greet 9-10 AM) at Trinity St. Stephen’s Amherst (coffee and sweets will be available).  Lunch is a home cooked turkey dinner with all the Maritime trimmings (the best chow in Amherst!). There is a morning and afternoon session as well as worship led by the Reverend Douglas Cosman from Sussex, NB. (we will wrap it up by 4:30 pm) .

Keynotes speaker this year will be the Reverend Major Charles Deogratias from the Canadian Forces who is currently stationed at CFB Gagetown in NB.  See attached backgrounder Heartprints.
