221st Brownies meets Thursdays 6:30pm-8:00pm weekly at CUC. Brownies are made up of girls in grades 2 and 3. Some highlights of some of the things we do are, crafts, singing, dancing (often led by members of CUC Musicals), science and cookie selling among many other activities. The girls work on earning badges by learning about just about anything from sewing to technology.
85th Guides meets Thursdays 6:30pm-8:00pm weekly at CUC. Guides are made up of girls in grades 4, 5 and 6. We continue to work on the Girl Guide program that has been started in Brownies. Some highlights include self esteem workshops, learning about girls in other countries, games, spa nights and camping! The girls work on earning badges by learning about anything from fashion to math.

In June of 2011, members of Charleswood United Church were pleased to become the 6th Winnipeg location for the Salvation Army’s low-stress support programs, known as Community Venture. This program began operations nearly 20 years ago and has grown to serve close to 150 people each day.
The goal of this Day Program is to have members enhance their independent living skills and their integration with the community; increase their self-esteem, confidence, and trust; and choose their personal program from a broad range of life skills, recreation, socialization, volunteer, and vocational opportunities.
Our staff and congregate members of Charleswood United Church have enjoyed watching the participants of the program become comfortable in and with Charleswood United Church and we hope they now think of it as their “home away from home”.
