South Shore United Church, #85 Route 10, Tryon, PEI
God calls us to work together in Christian fellowship
with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ:
worshiping, growing in faith, reaching out to others in the church,
community and world, and nuturing our hopes for the future.
United Church Women have two units
which meet regularly to provide a medium
through which they may express their loyalty and devotion
to Jesus Christ in Christian witness, study, fellowship
and service. These groups welcome any ladies in the
church for an afternoon or evening of fellowship.
The Christian Education and Development Committee plan programs for the congregation which invites persons of all ages to explore and grow in their relationship with God.
Sunday school programs are offered
for the children and youth who participate
first in the worship service by reading scripture and
occasionally presenting short dramas or musical selections.
The Library is a resource available to all in the congregation and we encourage its use for group or individual devotional material. Mid‑week Groups for Children & Youth are offered depending on leadership availability and demand. These are open to all youth of the community.
Adult Bible Study is held weekly during the fall and winter.
Evening Faith and Study Programs are also held periodically. The area of study is varied depending on leadership and interest.
Along with these programs we sponsor other fun and entertaining
events such as seniors’ dinners, after
service socials, and various types of fundraisers.
The congregation participates
in a number of ongoing outreach projects
such as the Christmas Giving Tree,
Sunday services are taped weekly and made available to those
unable to attend.
