The United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands (UCJCI) Women’s Fellowship Week was celebrated with the United Church Women’s Fellowship’s signature style of robust outreach and fundraising earlier this year. Women’s Fellowship Sunday started with a conversation on the UCJCI’s United in Faith radio programme by President-General of the Fellowship, Mrs. Pauline Bryan, who shared on the work and plans of this movement.
In the Western region, one of the projects at the Farm Heights United Church was the clean-up of the Watson Taylor Beach in Lucea, Hanover. Over in the North-Eastern region, the women visited those who were sick and shut-in, and New Bethel United Church were among over 140 sisters who ran, walked or jogged for a lap-a-thon in Port Maria and Kingston on 1 February.
In the Southern Region, a rally was held at Ridgemount United Church. The Myrtle Grandison-Lawson Shield was awarded to Andrews Memorial United Church for the highest returns from their lap-a-thons.
