UCW At Trinity


Trinity Unity Church Shediac has a very active UCW - United Church Women - group.   The group is the backbone of many of the fellowship, fundraising, and service to community programs of the congregation, as well as providing specific supports to the weekly and special Services of Worship.   They are behind fundraising activities such as the annual plant and yard sale, the lobster supper, card parties, after-church fellowship lunch, and so much more.  They provide support to the congregation and to the greater community, through a wide range of "Service to Community" endeavours.  They have been knitting, quilting and fundraising for local hospitals, and needs of the church. Their leadership skills and ability to "get great things done" for the community are legendary! 

The group as a whole meets at 2PM on the 3rd Wednesday (except July and August) of each month, although some members may gather together more frequently as they work to support specific causes.   

The UCW welcomes new members, with membership open to any woman from the church family or the community who wishes to share in the interests and responsibilities of the women of Trinity United Church. 

Please contact us if you are interested, or drop in to attend a meeting! 



Background
Women within the United Church have been forming UCW groups since the organization was formally inaugurated on January 1st, 1962 through the amalgamation of the Woman's Missionary Society (WMS) and the Woman's Association (WA).

Our Vision
As United Church Women we believe:

  • that as Christian women of faith, we nurture spirituality by reaching out with commitment and devotion to all God's people;
  • in promoting truth, justice, peace, caring and sharing with respect for all in the community and wider world;
  • in loving God and others by living generously and giving joyfully; and,
  • in affirming and strengthening ourselves creatively in study and witness through music, laughter and solitude.


Mission Statement
Our Mission is to love God, to foster Christian faithfulness, spirituality, commitment and devotion and to promote love and respect by living generously and giving joyfully to all God's people and to affirm and strengthen ourselves creatively.

The functions of the Trinity UCW Group include (but are not limited to):

  • To provide opportunities for fellowship and mutual support.
