The Spiritual Care and Wellness committee sponsors a knitting group that makes prayer shawls, prayer scarves and prayer patches. These are used as gifts to celebrate significant occasions: births, special anniversaries, achievements and to comfort and support people during times of illness and bereavement. In addition, clothing and coverings are made for: Cridge Centre for the Family, Women's Transition House, The Compassionate Warehouse, the UCW's Babywear for the Mustard Seed, Jeneece Place etc.
The group meets the second Tuesday of the month. In September, April, May and June, meetings are from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the church. October through March, meetings are held from 1:30 to 3:30 pm, also in the church. There is wool, needles, patterns, fun and fellowship to share.
