UCW – United Church Women
The purpose of the United Church Women (UCW) is to unite the women of the congregation together in the support of the mission of the church. Its aim is to provide opportunities for fellowship and service to our church and community. Throughout the year our Card Secretary sends out numerous get-well, birthday, sympathy, thinking of you and other cards to members of the Congregation. Our fundraising consists of providing a Soup Supper for UVic Campus Ministry, cater to Memorial and Celebration events, provide dinner to Presbytery when they meet at Gordon United, host the fun Penny Auction and the traditional Poinsettia Tea and Bazaar. Throughout the year the dedicated Group allocate funds to assist in major purchases that are required in and around the Church as well as donations to Missions outside the Church. All women of the congregation are welcome to attend the UCW meetings which are held at 1pm on the second Tuesday of each month.
Get Acquainted Group
Our GAG Group gathers in friendship to become more acquainted with each other on the third Monday of each month at 7:30pm. Bunwich Sunday is a popular event that we host on the last Sunday of each month allowing the Congregation to enjoy the opportunity to get to know each other more. Each year we fund raise through cookie and cupcake sales, the sale of Christmas poinsettias and any catering as requested. Our profits are used towards special needs in the church. On the 20th of each month we invite everyone to join us at a local restaurant for “Lunch Bunch”. A great tradition as we support our community and get to know each other more. If you can join us contact the Church Office for the current restaurant location.
