Outreach is at the core of Kenilworth Union Church. We are committed to serving the greater community in meaningful ways. We focus on supporting children and their education, emergency services, physical and mental health, or agencies that provide a range of services to a particular impoverished community.

Each year, Kenilworth Union makes small grants to approximately 40 not-for-profit benevolence agencies. In addition, our volunteers participate in various service programs, projects, or events at many of the supported agencies, all of which are selected during a formal annual process.

Special Outreach programs are available for children and youth.

Rummage Sale

A tradition dating back to the 1940’s brings Church and community together to donate quality goods, sort and arrange sale displays, and shop, shop, shop for a good cause! All proceeds benefit the agencies supported by the Church.
