The United Church of Canada was formed in 1925 when the Methodist, Congregationalist, and two-thirds of the Presbyterian churches in Canada amalgamated through an Act of Parliament. Since then, others have also joined. The General Council is the national governing body of the United Church and meets once every three years to set church policy and elect the Moderator, who provides spiritual leadership and is the public spokesperson for the United Church. The current Moderator is The Right Rev. Dr. Richard Bott.
The Mission and Service (M&S) Fund is a unified fund that supports the work of the church in Canada and around the world. Part of M&S is the World Development and Relief Fund, which supports overseas development projects, emergency relief efforts, and rehabilitation.
