Brooklin United Church is committed to a ministry of service as Outreach.
We make regular contributions to The United Church of Canada’s Mission and Service Fund which contributes support to local, national, and global mission partners.
We make our building available to the community – Horticultural Society, Karate Club, Calder School, Guides & Scouts, Town of Whitby events, etc.
For a number of years, BUC has been part of “Bridge to a New Home”, a multi-church working group sponsoring refugee families. Three families have come to live in Canada and 11 adults and children have had their lives changed forever.
Every Christmas, we participate with Social Services and Durham Aids in a Hamper Programme.
Every family receives food, gift cards, and some treats.
Ongoing support of the local food bank is part of our regular activity.
We participate in community events and hold dinners, luncheons, family nights and euchre parties that are open to everyone.
