This is a paid position. Please call Beverly Haggins at 519.733.0689 if interested in helping, even if you are only available for part of the time.

Ridgetown High School horticultural department—They had to destroy all their plants last Spring and are in need of annuals, perennials or tropical plants. Whenever you want to get rid of your plants, please call Deanna Reid 519-322-9509 and make arrangements for her to pick them up from you. Any seeds would be welcomed as well.

If you didn't have your picture taken, it would be wonderful if you could mail or deliver one of your own photos to the church office by September 30th. We are trying to make the album as complete as possible so that it's helpful to new church members, and to those of us who don't remember names like we used to. :-)
Thank-you! Barb Keys and David Clifford

Support & Giving

In this time of uncertainty, many of you have been extraordinarily generous in supporting the church. Thank you! If you have delayed making a regular gift, please consider making it now. That way we can keep helping where it is needed most, and in turn will help each other to re-build. It is the small regular donations that help the most, over time.

To make a gift of money—either as a one-off, or to set up a regular gift— contact the congregational Treasurers...
Olinda-Ruthven, David Clifford at 519.613.8708 or

All of us have had to cancel regional and local gatherings because of Covid 19, but the UCW has always been able to problem-solve and adapt to change, and we hope you will join us in this new venture of meeting by Zoom. We depend on you to spread the word about this event. We are hoping to have it broadcast on You Tube that each of the units can get to see this.
