Our Mission Statement

We are all one people

Inspired by the spirit of justice and mercy, the Outreach Circle works together with the congregations of Sackville Pastoral Charge to nurture, encourage, and affirm God’s transformative vision of an abundant, loving, and peaceful community.

Each Wednesday morning at 10am, Sackville United Church and Open Sky Co-op partner to host a time of coffee, snacks, and fellowship for anyone who wishes to attend.

Just Us
Feeding body and soul

Who says social justice can’t be delicious? For over a decade the Outreach Committee of the pastoral charge has sold JustUs! Fair Trade Coffee and Chocolate.

We do this both to support the fair wages that JustUs! offers its workers and international suppliers, and also as a fundraising project that we use to support our congregational work for social justice both locally and internationally.

Bright smiles

For several years, members of Upper Sackville United and the surrounding community have met each Tuesday to sew dresses and shorts for children in need, with both fabric and time faithfully donated.  Through our partners overseas, these clothes travel to Uganda to children at local schools – for many, these are the only piece of new clothing they have each year.
