The United Church of Canada
The United Church of Canada came into being in 1925 as a result of a union of the Congregationalists, the Methodists, two-thirds of the Presbyterians, and a group of Union Churches (primarily in western Canada). These founding groups joined on the basis of an agreement worked out over a decade earlier by a Joint Union Committee representing the Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian churches. That agreement, known as the Basis of Union, outlined in a general way the shape this new United Church would take.
Mission & Service Fund
The work of The United Church of Canada across the country and around the world is funded by the Mission and Service (M&S) Fund. Members and supporters of the United Church know that it takes money to put their faith into action. In the M&S Fund they combine their gifts so that the work of the church can be done effectively.
Each year we set a goal to fund united work. The Mission and Service Fund objective for 2011 is $30,200,000.
