Activities and groups
at Zion-Memorial

Zion-Memorial United Church is an active place, and is active in the community.  This page will give you a sense of some of the things that are going on and the work we do, but there will always be more happening than we can list here.  

United Church Women (UCW)

The UCW is a group for women of all ages and interests.

The UCW’s mission is to love God; foster Christian commitment, faithfulness, and spirituality; and promote respect and love for all God’s creation.

Any woman “willing to contribute her prayers, gifts, and services for the work of the Church” may join the United Church Women (UCW). Along with providing important networking and social bonding opportunities, the UCW has led discussions on, for example, feminism and restorative justice. Indeed, says Moderator Jordan Cantwell, United Church Women are the “hands and feet” of the church.

Tai-Chi Academy

Monday
10am - noon
Church Hall

The Canadian Tai Chi Academy teaches 108-move Tai Chi,
a style developed by Master Moy Lin-Shin (1931-1998).
He modified the traditional Yang Style 108-move Tai Chi set
to maximize the health benefits for faster health improvement,
as he realized that in a modern society,
an exercise that was good for health
was more important than a martial art for fighting.

The Sew'N'Sews

Wednesdays
9am - noon
Church Hall

The Sew’N’Sews are a group of ladies (men welcome) that get together every Wednesday morning  in the church hall. There is always a large quilt in a quilt frame so some ladies quilt while others do crafts, knit, crochet etc. Others work on a project of their own and come out to enjoy the fellowship. We stop mid-morning for a 'Cupa' and a treat. We start at 9 a.m. but there is no definite time to arrive or leave other than at noon. There is no roll call, fees or speeches - just good fellowship and busy fingers. The Sew’N’Sews are always ready to help (if we can) with a project you may be having trouble with or will even make or finish a project for you. We always have some items in our cupboards for sale especially hand made Baby Quilts (ideal gifts for new babies). We have Sales tables at the UCW Christmas Bazaar that are filled with beautiful gift ideas, mitts, toques, etc. All monies raised from our sales go into the UCW Treasury to be used for Zion-Memorial Church and community projects. Items donated to our sales tables are always welcome.
