Who we are:

All the women of Grace United Church are always invited to gather for fellowship and activities such as study sessions, guest presentations, craft nights, games/trivia nights. Our meetings are moving back to in person in the fall of 2022 and will be held on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. See more information about the meetings each month in Grace-Line.

 

Our History:

The purpose of United Church Women is:

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

At both Nelson and Tansley United Churches, the UCW maintained a strong presence in worship and fundraising, St. Stephen’s Women’s groups refrained from a formal UCW connection.

When amalgamation was confirmed among the three congregations, the women from all our former churches had a lot of dialogue to determine the way forward for the women of Grace United Church Burlington. Eventually we agreed to become an official member of the wider UCW.
