Mission & Service

The United Church of Canada has a positive impact on the world through its Mission and Service work. The Mission and Service Fund combines all of the annual gifts to The United Church of Canada to support service and ministry across Canada and around the globe. This work identifies us as a Christian community and illustrates our beliefs as Canada’s largest protestant denomination. Our Mission and Service work is how we live out our United Church creed, how we put our faith into action.

Please review our “Gifts With Vision” catalogue link – www.giftswithvision.ca

Through our Mission and Service work and the Mission and Service Fund, we are united in deciding what mission and ministry to support. We also pool our financial resources in the Mission and Service Fund to support this work. As such, with Mission and Service work we speak with a united voice in advocacy and justice work.

The United Church is also able to worship together and to work for human rights, social justice, peace initiatives, and global development thanks to the Mission and Service Fund. Gifts to the Mission and Service Fund from congregations, individuals, and from bequests total about $30,000,000 annually.

Mission and Service donations support congregations, programs, and new church development. Some of the money is spent in Canadian outreach programs, some on international relief and development programs, some to train ministers, some to maintain ecumenical relationships, and some to administer the work of the church.

M&S also lets us do Relief and Development Work. Supporters of the Mission and Service Fund want to give their gifts to support work that reflects their values and beliefs. The United Church’s Mission and Service Fund works with partners in Canada and internationally to ensure that needs are assessed quickly and accurately, that responses are immediate, and that ongoing support helps prevent problems from recurring.

Because of the Mission and Service Fund, the United Church is able to quickly respond to emergency situations without waiting for media appeals to create interest in them. Working with reliable trusted partners in Canada and in 37 countries means that less money is spent coordinating and delivering aid and more money goes where it is needed. The United Church is also blessed by the countless hours of work fulfilled by hundreds of United Church volunteers.

Consider supporting the Mission and Service Fund. You can make a gift through your local church, by sending a gift to the national office, by visiting our the United Church’s online donations page or by contacting a United Church Gift Planner at 1-800-268-3781.
