WMS Purpose: “The Women’s Missionary Society is a community of Christians whose purpose, in response to the love of God in Jesus Christ, is to encourage one another and all the people of the church to be involved in local and world mission through prayer, study, service and fellowship.”
Overview of Synodical:
Our Synodical was previously called Toronto-Kingston Synodical and was formed in 1947.
We became the Synodical of Central, Northeastern Ontario and Bermuda when the synod was renamed.
We serve the groups and Presbyterials of the Synodical, and in turn are responsible to the WMS Council of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
In 2015 we celebrated our 68th Anniversary as a Synodical at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Scarborough.
Our theme was “Abundant Living- Abundance for All”
For more information please look at our Annual Report 2015
Our local groups relate to their Presbyterial, and through the Presbyterial to the Synodical, and then to the WMS Council (National) of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
Presbyterials: 11 (3 are inactive as Presbyterials but some local groups continue)
