Networks and Clusters

A spider web with dew on it, and the left on a dark red background, "Networks and Clusters, Northern Spirit Regional Council".

What are Clusters and Networks? Who’s working on them, and how do the people of the United Church in Northern Spirit get involved? Interested in starting a Network or Cluster? Confused? Have ideas to share? We want to hear from you!

Contact the office at northernspirit@united-church.ca or 780.435.3995

Please click here for a PDF list of all known Networks and Clusters.​ (Updated January 2023). We’ll update this a couple of times a year, and these contacts are also included in our Regional Council directory. Don’t see your group listed? Give the office a call!
For additional information, please see this short national church resource.

So far, Northern Spirit Regional Council includes many Clusters (people in fairly close geographic proximity) and Networks (wider-ranging groups of people that share an interest in a common concern, topic, or focus.) Many Networks work across the entire church, giving their members a chance to connect across Regional boundaries. And Clusters exist to create more immediate support and connection between communities of faith, ministers, lay leaders, and more.

Our Regional budget offers support to Network and Cluster events and programs, so please don’t let financial concerns get in the way of your ministry. Information about grants can be found here. If you are ready to go ahead and access funds, please use this form.
