Districts of the New England Region
The New England Region is comprised of 234 congregations. The congregations in this geographical area were previously organized into districts. As the UUA reorganized into 5 Regions, all but one (NNED) have merged.
The most recent iterations of districts of the New England Region were:
- Ballou Channing District (BCD) has dissolved, effective August 2019 It included forty-five congregations from Rhode Island, southeastern Massachusetts, including the South Shore, Cape Cod and the Islands.
- Clara Barton District (CBD) has dissolved, effective April 2016. It included sixty-six congregations from central and western Massachusetts, and all but the southwest corner of Connecticut.
- Massachusetts Bay District (MBD) has dissolved, effective April 2016. It included fifty-three congregations from Greater Boston and Northeast Massachusetts.
- Northern New England District (NNED) includes seventy congregations from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
A New England Region Advisory Council was created in the fall of 2015 to provide pathways for gathering feedback about regional programming and support. The council was temporarily suspended in summer of 2017 during the search for a New England Region Lead. The council has resumed its work effective September 2019.
