Mission and Service
The United Church’s Mission and Service programs help people in need by supporting homeless shelters, food banks, soup kitchens, and refugee programs. Through Mission and Service, we help young people on campuses and through camping outreach; we help people who are sick or at the end of life by supporting addiction, mental health, and counselling services and hospice care. Across Canada, we support seven theological schools and three educational centres, as well as 31 chaplaincies on campuses and in hospitals. We support new and innovative church ministries, as well as communities of faith that are remote or in need.
Globally, Mission and Service helps people access clean water, food, and medical care. We support skills training and economic development. We help with peace-making and sustainable agriculture efforts. We provide disaster relief and advocate for the rights of those who all too often don’t get a say, like children and migrant workers.
We support church organizations that work with theological schools, and we support practical training in agriculture and health care.
At this very moment, Mission and Service is working alongside 72 partners in 21 countries around the world. These vital partnerships allow us to maximize generosity in places that desperately need our help and put donations to work quickly and effectively when disaster strikes almost anywhere in the world.
