As One That Serves
Our men’s group has always been well attended and traditionally been one of the largest AOTS clubs in Canada. They are a vibrant and seemingly ageless group of men who work hard for their church and community – and have a whale of a time doing it!
Affiliated with the National Association of AOTS Men’s Clubs, Duncan AOTS was at one time one of over 60 active clubs across Canada. First formed at Kerrisdale Methodist (now Ryerson United) in Vancouver in 1923, AOTS clubs are dedicated to promoting Christian fellowship, deepening the spiritual life of men and developing effective programs of Christian service.
The men support many projects in our church, Burns Night in January, garage sales in the spring and fall, pancake breakfasts with the youth groups and the barbecue at our yearly Fun Fair at Providence Farm in June.
Regular Breakfast meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month. In addition to great food, often provided by the UCW, the men enjoy the camaraderie of time spent together. Their program often includes a speaker, devotional, and a short business meeting.
Through their efforts, they provide support to dozens of church and community outreach programmes, with a special emphasis on the support of youth programmes in the church and in the wider community.
