"...there are two things that people crave: the full realization of their innate gifts, and to have these gifts approved, acknowledged, and confirmed." ~ Malidoma Somé, The Healing Wisdom of Africa

The New England Region (NER) is composed of 232 congregations. The congregations in this geographical area were previously organized into districts. As the UUA reorganized nationally into 5 Regions (New England, Southern, Central East, Mid-America, Pacific West), all former districts in New England merged into the New England Region. The mission of the New England Region UUA staff is to equip and support religious professionals and lay leaders for healthy, vibrant Unitarian Universalist ministries. We are here to listen, support, coach and consult on any aspect of congregational life, including challenges and successes in your ministries. We also connect congregational leaders to share wisdom and experiences with each other through learning opportunities and gatherings throughout the year. What's on your mind and in your heart today? Start a conversation with us.
