United Church Women
The United Church Women, or UCW as it is more commonly known is a group of women dedicated to fellowship, worship, and community engagement both locally and in the greater world. They meet on the third Wednesday at 2:00 pm of each month September through June. They gather together for a pot luck dinner in June and September on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:15 pm.
Outreach commitments are made to support Saint Luke's Church, United Church of Canada Mission and Service, United College at the University of Waterloo and FullSoul (a program dedicated to providing essential supplies for expectant mothers in Uganda).
In addition to providing fellowship for the women of the church and fundraising for outside organizations, the UCW caters birthday and anniversary parties, funeral receptions, and other events at the church. They also provide a coffee stand at the Truckin' Tuesday food truck event which runs May through August.
Since our recent renovations, we now have a commercial kitchen available to host community events. We welcome all ladies of the congregation.
