We Care

Our Vision is to care for and develop connections with people both within and beyond our own congregation. You’ll see below some of the regular programs underway at The Donway Covenant United Church.  

In addition to these events, we also have a Pastoral Care committee who reaches out individually to those in the congregation to celebrate their joys and share in their sorrows. Every Sunday, each of us can also bring forward the names of those we want to include in community prayer at our weekly Worship Service.

 

Soup & Film Series 
Every fall and spring the outreach committee hosts a soup & film series. Everyone is invited to come either at 4pm or 7pm (same film repeated) to view a film and to share a light soup supper at 6pm. A lively discussion follows the screening. All are welcome.  Cost is only $5 per person.

Fair Trade Fair

Every spring we invite the community to our Fair Trade Fair. Only vendors who sell items that are recognized as being produced and distributed using the standards of Fair Trade practices are allowed to sell their items here. Come and support this growing industry by purchasing products such as coffee, chocolate, clothing, jewelry and much more. We also have a cafe using Fair Trade products so you to can relax and enjoy your experience.
