The General Assembly will begin on Sunday June 4, 2017, with worship and the celebration of communion at 7:00 p.m. in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Kingston, Ontario. The meetings of the Assembly will be held at Queen’s University.
“Jesus Christ – the same yesterday, today, forever” from Hebrews 13:8 is the chosen theme. This focus upon Christ provides the foundation and the exhortation for our unity. (Artwork provided by Bryan Babcock Design.)
