NOTE that January 1, 2019, the United Church enacted a decision that ended the ministry of Presbyteries and Conferences. 
They were replaced by Regional Councils, and these new entities will be asked to embark on a new (in some cases, modified) Affirming process. AUSE offers its gratitude and respect to the Conferences and Presbyteries who became Affirming, thus creating a safer sacred space, and finding new ways of helping church policies, practices, and programs become more inclusive of LGBTQIA+ and Two Spirit people. AUSE looks forward to continued and renewed work alongside the Regions of the United Church and will post updates as they are available. Please scroll to the bottom of this page for the complete list of Affirming former presbyteries and Conferences.
