Biographical history

The United Church Woman's Missionary Society (WMS) was created in 1925 through an amalgamation of the Woman's Missionary Societies of the uniting churches. The Congregationalist, Methodist and Presbyterian Woman's Missionary Societies had been created as an adjunct to the existing home and foreign missionary societies of these churches in order to take over aspects of the work which were thought to be particularly the province of women. This included the employment and support of lady teachers for mission schools and female medical workers, the staffing, support and supervision of institutions such as orphanages, school homes, residential schools and social service homes and other such mission work as was predominately carried on among women and children. The Women's Missionary Society (WMS) of Trinity United was first organized in 1901 in the home of Mrs. W.S. Beaver. An Evening Auxiliary developed from The Ladies Circle first organized in 1916 – 1917.
