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 four 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.
