United Church Women
What’s the UCW? Described by the Very Rev. Jordan Cantwell as the “hands and feet” of the church,” the UCW came into being in 1967 through the merger of two other women’s groups. Like its predecessors, it is active in all parts of the church, from the local congregation to international partnerships.
Membership is open to any woman “willing to contribute her prayers, gifts, and services for the work of the Church”. The St. Mark’s UCW meets monthly, September to June, on the first Tuesday of the month. These meetings include worship, business, and times for friendly visiting.
Throughout the year there are various regional meetings across the Quinte area, which members are invited to attend. Some have names like the “Spring Fling” or a “Women’s Weekend” at Camp Quin-Mo-Lac.
Fundraising is undertaken to support St. Mark’s, the United Church Mission & Service Fund and, other charitable organizations.
