The purpose of the Woodroffe United Church Women (UCW) is to unite all 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.
The United Church Women (UCW) consists of a group of several UCW units, a UCW Executive and a President. The President is elected by UCW members, at a June meeting, normally for a period of one year or longer as may be agreed. A Central Executive, consisting of the President, a Vice-President, a Secretary and a Treasurer is elected by the UCW as a whole, also normally for a period of one year. The Executive also has as members the convener of each UCW unit elected by the individual units.
The UCW of Woodroffe United Church are responsible to the Congregation through Council for carrying out the purpose of the UCW, providing opportunities for Christian growth and Christian fellowship for all women of the Congregation and for supplying funds for various projects designed to achieve the UCW purpose.
The duties and activities of the UCW include:
Organizing UCW Units, each of which has representation in a Central Executive Committee.
Raising and dispensing funds for various church purposes as decided by the individual Units - and controlling expenditures. (Each Unit attempts to raise an estimated allocation of funds for the Central Executive Committee and make its own decision on how to raise funds).
Meeting with Unit Leaders at least once a year to conduct UCW business.
