Background

When Mill Woods was a new community, people of faith with United Church backgrounds gathered in homes and then in schools to create a new church. Since 1976, Mill Woods United has been an official congregation within the United Church of Canada and since 1993 we have gathered for worship and mission in a building near 66th Street and 38th Avenue at 15 Grand Meadow Crescent.

Our church was started by people of vision, and today it is sustained by the gifts of people like you.

Mill Woods United is alive with people committed to values of radical hospitality, spirituality and social justice. It is a community of people who seek to live in wisdom and compassion by reflecting on the stories of scripture, the stories of our time, and the stories of our lives.

Thank you for considering a financial gift to Mill Woods United Church.

Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) Direct Debit: The most cost-effective way to contribute is through regular, automatic bank transfer, known as Pre Authorized Remittance (PAR) in banking jargon. Through PAR, 100 percent of your gift goes directly to your church without third-party processing fees. You receive an annual tax receipt from Mill Woods United Church (MWUC).

  • PAR allows you to consider your gift annually and determine a monthly gift that fits your budget.
  • PAR helps you keep your church strong even on those Sundays you aren’t able to attend.
  • PAR gives your church the ability to plan ahead for the programs and people that will grow our living values in the world.

To sign up for Pre Authorized Giving fill out the PAR form and, contact the Office Administrator.

If PAR giving is not right for you at this time, there are other ways to give:

Cash or cheque in personal offering envelopes: Visitor envelopes are always available on the hymn book cart, but you can request personalized envelopes via the church office. MWUC pays the cost of personalized envelopes and receipts any donations made annually. To arrange for offering envelopes contact the Administrator at mwuc1@telus.net
