Anglican Church Women

The Anglican Church Women (ACW) is an organization throughout the APCK, and we have a chapter here at St. Augustine’s in Chico. Our female church members organize to provide hospitality and fun events; raise funds for congregational projects and international ministry; and care for members of our flock.

 

Our theme for 2021 is: Kindness In Action (K.I.A.).

And our Fall Special Efforts go for Our Diaper Drive for the Women's Resource Clinic: 

From September 1 to October 31, ACW will be collecting the following items:  all things baby!  

 

This includes: diapers (all sizes) and pull ups, fall and winter clothing (newborn to toddler), baby blankets, diaper wipes, formula, pacifiers, bottles!   No item too small or insignificant!  Gently used clothing and blankets are acceptable.

 

Should you feel you would like to do more, WRC is asking for gift cards to Target, Costco, or Walmart for items such as cribs, pak-n-play, high chairs, strollers, bouncy seats, walkers and bassinets.  

 

You can also make a direct cash or check donation to ACW and put "Diaper Drive" in the memo line.

 

Our officers for 2021 are:

President – Clariece Tally

Vice-President – Eileen Leadbetter

Secretary – Siobhan Leadbetter

Treasurer – Giti Hansen

 

Yearly events by our ACW include:

 

Thanksgiving and St. Valentine’s Bake (No Bake) Sales, where members supply baked and other goods for sale, while others can buy or simply make a donation (no bake).

 

The Thaw, our annual Chili Cook Off at the Spring Equinox, encourage members to bring their best chili dishes, and we feast on variety of chili preparations.

 

St. Augustine of Canterbury Day Italian Food Festival commemorates our patron’s voyage from Rome to Canterbury to share the faith with the English. It is our fond hope that they also shared some tasty Italian food.

 

The Ice Cream Social in mid-Summer cools our bodies and sweetens our hearts as we celebrate Sundae Sunday.

 

We recently held a silent auction, “Tea for Two,” that offered three sets of two English bone china cups and saucers along with some British tea and cookies. The three sets are all in new happy homes.

 

We also enjoy many other fun and fabulous social times with our church members.

 

For 2021, the ACW is sponsoring two charities, one local and the other international. Our local charity is the Women’s Resource Clinic, a place that offers women and their soon-to-be-born babies the opportunity to choose life. The ACW also sponsors a 14-year-old girl, Munni, in Bangladesh through World Vision. Due to the generosity of our members, Munni is being fed, clothed, educated, and equipped for life. Her family and village also benefit from the ACW’s support.

 

Our ACW meets monthly and sets its course with prayer, inspired readings, and life-changing projects. Please come and join us!
