HEAR YE! HEAR YE! The 23rd Christmas Cookie Walk and Craft Fair and Silent Auction is happening on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 9 am until noon.
This is one of our congregation's largest fund-raisers of the year and we need everyone, men, women, and children, to bake Christmas cookies. (I want to hear of friendly challenges between families.)  We need crafts and we need new or gently used quality items for the Silent Auction (not garage sale items, please). Auction items may include tickets to events or volunteering your time to make a meal, babysit, put up Christmas lights, etc. Your donations may be dropped off at the church kitchen on Friday, Dec. 5 9am-noon or 7-9 pm; or on Sat. morning at 8 am. Tell your friends and neighbours about this event. This is the easiest way to purchase a variety of cookies for your holiday entertaining and pick up a couple of presents while you are there. Stop and have a cup of tea before you continue on to do your other errands. Our quartet, Revelation, will be singing Christmas songs for our holiday pleasure.  A few reminders: bring your cookies in a disposable container or label your container and the lid. We will be laying the cookies out on tables so they do not need to be packaged in any special way.  We need some helpers to put out the signs the week before and to set up and take down the tables. The money UCW raises goes towards the operating expenses of our church, improvements to our building and gardens, kitchen expenses, providing cash for our benevolent fund, and giving to other worthy charities. If you need any more information please call Martha Townshend Colford.


Ride for Refuge 2014

$5141.00was raised towards the Kanata Stittsville Refugee Sponsorship Group. The Ride for Refuge organization will take a portion of those funds to help pay for its organizational expenses leaving the refugee group with over $3500.00 to add to its revenues.

The Wheels of Fortune riders appreciate the support given its members  from Glen Cairn United Church, the other churches in the Sponsorship Group, and their friends, relatives and associates that donated money for refugees. One hundred and nineteen (119) individuals and organizations donated to the team. Thank you all. Your support made our rides so much more enjoyable.

The Oasis in Kanata
is a community outreach program of Glen Cairn United Church that offers information and support for caregivers in Kanata and its surrounding areas.  Living with mental illness can be as challenging for those close to the individuals as for the individuals themselves.  Check out our *NEW* Web site at  for information about this exciting initiative
