Vision

As women of faith,
We believe in nurturing Christian spirituality
by reaching out
through commitment and devotion
to all God’s people
in the promotion of truth, justice, peace,
caring, and respect
for all throughout the earth, God’s world;
We believe in honouring God the Creator,
and loving others through generous giving
and joyful living;
And we believe in affirming and
strengthening ourselves
both individually and together
through creative study, prayer, and action.

Mission Statement

Love God
Foster Christian commitment, faithfulness, and spirituality.
Promote respect and love for all God’s creation.

Purpose

To unite women of the
congregation for the total
mission of the church and to
be a means by which we
may express our loyalty and
devotion to Jesus Christ
in Christian witness, study,
fellowship, and service.


How do I become a member of the UCW? Membership is open to any woman who is in agreement with the Purpose of the United Church Women, and who is willing to participate on a regular basis with her prayers, gifts, and services for the work of the church in the world.

How do I know what Unit I should join? Trinity’s UCW has two Units: The Friendship unit, which meets the first Wednesday of the month, usually in the evening at the church. The other is the New Horizons Unit, which meets in the evening on the second Tuesday of the month in the Church Parlour.

Our suggestion would be to visit each group and decide which one best suits you. Linda and I, both, feel that this is the only way you will feel truly part of the UCW.
