U.C.W. Purpose

To unite women of the congregation for the total mission of the church and to provide a medium through which they may express their loyalty and devotion to Jesus Christ in Christian witness, study, fellowship and service.

U.C.W. Meetings

The United Church Women of Trinity United Church meet on the first Tuesday of each month from September to June in the Fireside room at 1:30 p.m.  We call this the “General” U.C.W. meeting.  In December and June, we hold a potluck luncheon.  All women of the congregation are welcome to the General meeting and to participate at the potluck luncheons.

The 2018-19 Executive is as follows:

Ena Mori – President
Barb Bradford – Vice President
Joanne Gilman – Secretary
Elaine Schmidt – Treasurer

Our phone numbers and e-mails are in the church directory should you wish to contact us for further information.

Active U.C.W. Units – (September to June)

Century unit meet on the 3rdTuesday of each month at 1:30 p.m.

Jubilee unit meet on the 3rdTuesday of each month at 1:30 p.m.

Friendship unit meet on the 2ndFriday of each month at 1:30 p.m.

Ladies are welcome to join a unit …. A great way to learn more about the workings of the U.C.W. while making new friends.

We appreciate that not all the women can attend both the “General” and the
”Unit” meetings.  Please feel free to attend as your schedule permits.

Over the years, the U.C.W. has organized Spring and Fall Teas and catered to many various lunches and memorial teas.  Our fundraisers have allowed us to support many good causes.  We contribute to Trinity United Church in various ways such as the upgraded sound and projection system, including hearing assist for those with hearing difficulties, supplying kitchen items to supporting the prayer shawl ministry.  We support local camperships to Mackenzie Camp as well as financial aid to First United in Vancouver and a generous contribution to Mission and Service Fund in the United Church of Canada to support worldwide projects. These are just a few of our many projects and givings over the years at Trinity. We are blessed to be able to serve and give what we can.
