The purpose of the New England Association of United Church Educators is to plan and host its annual Conference on Christian Education. This event is generally held at Pilgrim Pines Conference Center in Swanzey, NH. (From 1984 to 2014 this event was enjoyed at the Craigville Conference Center on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.) High quality keynote speakers, worship leaders, and workshops are offered during this three-day event which includes time for networking and nature walks while expanding one’s horizons in Christian education and faith formation.

Optional Pre-NEAUCE Retreat
Are You Called To Ministry?
Join Debbie Gline Allen, Minister of Faith Formation for the Southern New England Conference, and your faith formation and youth ministry colleagues for a 24-hour Pre-NEAUCE Retreat to examine your specific call to ministry.
Not sure if you are being called to ministry? This retreat will offer the opportunity to examine your sense of call - be it a loud clanging cymbal or a still small voice. There will be time for learning, journalling, walking, meditation/worship and sharing with colleagues.
When registering for the NEAUCE event, also select the "Pre-NEAUCE Retreat" option from 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday to 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, and will include Wednesday dinner, Wednesday night lodging, and Thursday breakfast.
The Pre-NEAUCE Retreat is offered at no cost; however, you will need to pay for the extra overnight and two meals.
This retreat is limited to 10 participants, so register early!
