    The Hawai'i Conference United Church of Christ has moved its headquarters to 1848 Nu'uanu Ave., though it is keeping all telephone and e-mail addresses the same.

    The headquarters moved from its Craigside Place location to make way for a middle-income retirement center, a new ministry for the HCUCC.

    The move was completed Jan. 18.
