The Anglican Church Women (A.C.W.) was formed
- to unite women in fellowship of worship, study and stewardship which will deepen and strengthen their own spiritual lives and which will lead them into Christian service everywhere.
- to arouse and sustain an informed interest in the total mission of the church.
The A.C.W. and its events is open to all women of the Anglican Church.
There are branches of the A.C.W. in 17 parishes in the Diocese of New Westminster.
Anglican Church Women are involved in many activities: collecting "freebies" for school projects, gathering offerings for many causes, and making up A.C.W. bales of clothing for parishes in the Yukon.
