Thorndale United Church Women

Welcome to the Thorndale United Church Women Web Page. All ladies who are members of Thorndale United Church are members of the UCW. We warmly welcome all who would like to join us. We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m., excluding July and August.

Our Purpose is, “To unite women of the congregation for the total mission of the Church and to provide a medium through which we may express their loyalty and devotion to Jesus Christ in Christian Witness, Study, Fellowship and Service”.

We are divided into four committees, Church in Society, Stewardship, World Outreach and Christian Development. Each committee plans and hosts two meetings per year. The other two meetings take the form of a Spring Luncheon in May, and in January, Coin teams provide the programme and lunch. Our June meeting is an outing usually to a Theatre Production, or some other place of interest such as Iris Gardens, Stratford Theatre Wardrobe Shop or a picnic at one of the member’s home.

Besides our regular meetings, our members visit monthly the sick, elderly or shut-ins and remember them at Christmas with a gift; sell previously enjoyed magazines (for a reasonable price of 2 for $1.); honour birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, marriages; cater to Thorndale Lions Dinner Meetings three times a year and funeral lunches when needed; update the Church Photo Album; collect used stamps to help purchase Bibles for Third World Countries, used eye glasses to go overseas and pennies to help meet expenses; financially support Vacation Bible School, our church, fourteen services outside the Congregation and the United Church Mission & Service Fund; take care of church flowerbeds and the church kitchen.

We value the support of the Congregation, and welcome new members at any time to our enjoyable and informative meetings.
