Central United Church Strategic Plan 2023-2028



Good morning to all members of Central United Church. 


The Strategic Planning Committee completed its work and submitted a Strategic Plan for Central United Church for 2023 – 2028 at a special meeting of Council held on June 28, 2023. Council voted unanimously to accept the Strategic Plan and agreed to present it to the Congregation for approval.  


The Strategic Plan has been posted to the Church website for all to read. You can access the Strategic Plan by clicking here. 


Council also wishes to advise that a Special Congregational Meeting has been scheduled for September 10, 2023, immediately following our Sunday worship service, to review and approve the Strategic Plan. Everyone is invited to attend the congregational meeting to hear more about our Strategic Plan, participate in a Q & A session and if deemed appropriate, approve the adoption of the Plan. 


One of the strategic initiatives in the Strategic Plan is to engage an outside online marketing firm to assist us with a digital strategy to (1) attract visitors by increasing visibility through online search tools, (2) build our brand/profile and tell our “story” so the community understands who we are as a church and (3) provide ongoing support when needed to ensure that our marketing and digital strategy is always up to date. A small group led by our Council Chair, Mark Ono has begun to investigate marketing firms who might be able to help us in this regard. If anyone in the congregation is interested in assisting Mark with this initiative, please contact Mark at mpono@rogers.com or at (416) 458-1854. 


Blessings to all of you

Mark Ono, on behalf of your Church Council
