Good News! We've just made
12 New

Through Seeds of Hope and the New Ministries funding stream, 12 United Church organizations have received new grants.  Another 5 organizations with multi-year grants received instalments to continue their work.

With these grants congregations and ministries across the country are doing amazing things!

For Example, Oak Table Community Ministry in Winnipeg MB recieved $2,655 for APPlied Literacy: App based literacy for adults.  Many of Oak Table Community Ministry’s elderly guests struggle with basic reading. This program will allows them to learn to read in a new way that does not intimidate or make them feel stigmatized for being illiterate.  App based literacy will help participants learn words that they need to understand daily. From being able to understand a bus schedule, instructions in a doctor's office, to a grocery list and social media, improved literacy will impact all areas of the participants’ lives.
Or, Trinity United Church in Minto NB received $500 for the Trinity Senior Shuffleboard Project which will encourage positive social interactions within the community and be a valuable outlet for seniors. The project will provide a time of physical, mental, and social activity within the realm of wellness for those in attendance.
