Good news – we took the step! Bay of Quinte Conference UCW Annual General meeting in April 2015 voted 96% in favour of becoming an Affirming Ministry.  This vote applies to the work of Conference UCW only; Presbyterials and local UCWs make their own decisions.

We are delighted with the result and look forward to preparing our Mission Goals and Action Plan, seeking Affirm United recognition and planning our celebration.  We celebrate diversity and are grateful for the spirit and overwhelming support of our Bay of Quinte Conference UCW members.

 

Purpose
To unite women of the congregation for the totalmission of the church and to provide a medium through which we may express our loyalty and dovotion to Jesus Christ in Christian WITNESS, STUDY, FELLOWSHIP and SERVICE

And now go with us, Lord
Into the days ahead,
Strengthen us for peace

And so striving
Build a new and better world of tomorrow.
