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. Call the church office to find out how you can participate!
The Meat Pie Ladies meet each month to enjoy fellowship as they prepare turkey and beef pies to sell in the community. Many of the Meat Pie Ladies are from the UCW but there are also many ladies from the larger community who have joined this group. Funds raised support various initiatives around the church and in the community. This activity has been paused due to COVID-19 restrictions.
