Church Hub – Church Contact Information

Please be aware that when updating Church contact information, especially emails, in Church Hub it does not automatically update that information on the united-church.ca/search/locator. While in the process of making that a reality, it is taking longer than had been expected so in the meantime please email any updates for Church contact information to the dedicated account for locator updates: chupdate@united-church.ca.
