CELEBRATING 50 YEARS

Text/HTML

In 2012, during the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the UCW, St. Davids-Queenston United Church member Rena Edgely wrote a song: “United Church Women”, which was chosen by the United Church National Executive to become the "signature" song of the UCW.

United Church Women

(Words and Music by Rena Edgley)

Ever since our church was founded back in 1925,
The women all have worked to keep it healthy and alive,
We came from diff’rent churches
but no matter what the name,
United Church Women we became.

(Refrain)
We are united throughout the land,
Our work and worship go hand in hand.
We stand together in faith and love,
To serve our Father up above.

Our history has shown that should adversity befall,
When helping hands are needed
we are here for one and all
For church or for community or missions far abroad,
We rejoice in the service of our God.

(Refrain)
We are united throughout the land,
Our work and worship go hand in hand.
Into the future we gladly go,
And our God leads us, this we know.
