Since the union of the Woman’s Missionary Society (WMS) and the Woman’s Association (WA) in 1962, for 55 years United Church Women (UCW) have lived out their mission to

  • love God
  • foster Christian commitment
  • be faithful
  • embrace spirituality
  • promote respect and love for all God’s creation

We celebrate the extraordinary devotion of these ordinary heroes who have

  • raised money for Mission & Service (over $134 million)
  • advocated for human rights in Canada and internationally
  • cared for the sick
  • promoted cooperation and leadership
  • fed the church and community
  • joined protests
  • studied the Bible
  • written letters to politicians and government leaders
  • provided fellowship and service
  • supported the ministry of global partners, especially the Morogoro Women’s Training Centre in Tanzania, where birth attendants are trained to go out into communities and offer a healthy start for newborns as well as care for the mothers
  • laughed, loved, and made room for women of all ages

If Mission & Service giving is already a regular part of your life, thank you so much! If you have not given, please offer your gratitude for UCW and join them in making Mission & Service giving a regular part of your life of faith. Loving our neighbour is at the heart of our Mission & Service.
