Annual Declaration of Criminal Records

It is that special time of year again…

As ministry personnel (including candidates in Supervised Ministry Education appointments or other appointments) you need to submit your annual declaration on criminal charges form on ChurchHub. This can be done now, and the portal will remain open until May 15, 2022.

It is essential that you fill out this form in order that you may remain on the registry of accredited minsters, be eligible for calls or appointments and for licenses for sacraments and marriages.

There is no payment required, neither does it require a lot of time. To fill out the form:

  1. Log in to churchhub.ca and click the “My Ministry Page” tile.
  2. Look to the right for the “My Professional Requirements” box and then select the “View” link next to “Annual Declaration 2022”.
  3. Enter the date of your last police records check. (Contact your OV minister if you do not have the date of your last police records check).
  4. Tick the appropriate box for your declarations and submit.

If you are having technical problems with ChurchHub, please contact ministry@united-church.ca
