- Set up a Whova “booth”.
ALL United Church global partners and Regional councils are invited to set up Whova virtual booth. A “booth” is an online space that can hold a brief description of your organization’s mission and ministry, and share photos, video, presentations, or handouts that event participants can access when they “enter” the online booth.
Whova booths will be visible to all attendees throughout the event, and look like the image below. Attendees will have the opportunity to leave chat messages with your organization at the booth. We recommend that someone from your organization checks in to the booth once per day during the event to see what chats have happened and respond, if able.
To set up a booth, please input your information into the form linked here: https://unitedchurch.formstack.com/forms/boothenglish
If you have any questions about setting up a booth, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. A United Church staff person will be in contact to guide you through the process to become a Whova “Exhibitor.”

Follow-up and Timelines
This communication will be followed up shortly with another contact from a colleague in the UCCanada’s Global Partnership staff team. Please let them know by October 8 if you would like to set up a booth. Organizers ask that the material for booths be uploaded by October 20.
We look forward to gathering to worship, learn, build community, and recognize who and
whose we are. Let us celebrate and ENGAGE Love and Justice!
Executive Minister – Church in Mission
We sing of God’s good news lived out,
a church with purpose:
faith nurtured and hearts comforted,
gifts shared for the good of all,
resistance to the forces that exploit and marginalize,
fierce love in the face of violence,
human dignity defended,
members of a community held and inspired by God,
corrected and comforted,
instrument of the loving Spirit of Christ,
We sing of God’s mission.
