Telling Our Story

As the 200th Anniversary of the founding of our church approaches we are collecting stories from members of the congregation who have been fundamental in creating programs, events and special missions over the past 50 years. Do you have a story to tell?  Many individuals have already agreed to take part in this initiative allowing us to bring the 150th Anniversary Book (published 1968) up to date. But – we don't want to miss anything!  If you have a story to tell please contact either Mary Smith kenmar.smith@rogers.com or Helen Roberts  ivorhelen@sympatico.ca for further information on how to participate in this exciting program 

Cobs Cards Coming Back  Don’t Miss Out!  

It’s back! Cobs Bread, maker of delicious breads & pastries is once again supporting AUC by providing cards which you can purchase for $20 from the Aurora UCW!  The cards have a value of $50 worth of merchandise from either the Aurora store or the Cobs store at Upper Canada Mall.

Each card specifies 8 items which you will receive for free (with purchase of a card - one item per visit). The items include various types of bread, cinnamon rolls, cinnamon bread, scones & a large ‘sweet’ (pastry).   

Please consider buying one or more of these cards not just for  yourself but perhaps as a treat for a neighbour, a friend or a relative. A purchase of a Cobs Card wins twice - the purchaser receives delicious baked goods & our UCW receives a donation which will go towards our new church building.  

Cards will be on sale after church every Sunday or through members of the UCW Executive. Questions or more information - call Helen Roberts 905-713-1597
