MISSION & SERVICE
In the United Church we decide together what mission and ministry to support. We also pool our financial resources to support this work. This pool of money is called the Mission and Service Fund. It is made up of voluntary gifts and together we use it to fund our worship, our church organization, our ministry, and God’s mission.
The M&S Fund connects us to each other as members of the United Church in Canada and Bermuda, enabling us to speak with a united voice in advocacy and justice work and to participate together in our worship life. The M&S Fund connects us to our faith: we live in God’s world, we believe in God who works in us and by the Spirit. The Mission and Service Fund connects us to others around the corner and around the world to whom we offer a loving hand of support.
The M&S Fund is the only fund in which members and friends of the United Church pool their givings. Gifts are also given by members to their local church, but it is through the Mission and Service Fund that we collectively live our creed "to be the Church, to celebrate God’s presence, to live with respect in Creation, to love and serve others, and to seek justice and resist evil" (from A New Creed).
BROOKBANKS FOR AFRICAN GRANNIES
Brookbanks for African Grannies has been a group in the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign since 2007. We are pleased to be supported by Jubilee United Church as part of Outreach. We are passionate about raising funds to help African Grandmothers who are caring for children whose parents have died of HIV/Aids. The Stephen Lewis Foundation supports on the ground local agencies in 15 African countries which helps grandmothers, children, and people living with HIV/Aids with financial support, nutrition, health care, income generation, and education.
We welcome new members. If interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
