UCW celebrates 50 years of service
In 1962 the UCW was formed by the amalgamation of two women’s groups, the Women’s Missionary Society (WMS) and the Women’s Auxiliary (WA). Today we continue to serve in our community by visiting the sick and those less physically able and also support local projects. We give generously to support the work of the M&S Fund and other groups such as Robin’s Nest Children’s Homes in Africa.
Sunday June 3, 2012 the UCW participated in a congregational service. Candles were lit and threads (ribbons) were placed as symbols of our weaving a story of service and love.
Eighteen members received certificates to honour their 50 plus years of service. These Charter Members represent the dedication of the UCW. The congregation gave them a well-deserved standing ovation.
Refreshments were served after church.
