Administrative history

The Church of England Women’s Association (C.E.W.A) was founded in 1876 at Heart’s Content. The C.E.W.A promoted Christian unity and fellowship at home and overseas. The C.E.W.A was formed in English Harbour December 19th, 1925 and an Altar Guild was formed in May 1929, eight women from the congregation attended the first meeting. The group was formed with the purpose of changing and preparing the altar and work included cleaning the brass and making new altar cloths. The Guild also carried out other work such as sewing, knitting, embroidery, etc. that they sold at their regular sales of work at Easter and during the Fall of the year. Proceeds from these sales were donated to various charities at home and abroad as well as contributions were made to the Rector’s stipend and church repairs.

The organization became known as the Anglican Church Women’s Association, (A.C.W.A), after restructuring in 1969. In 1976 the word “Association” was omitted and a new organization was formed, the Anglican Church Women (A.C.W.). The A.C.W. closed in English Harbour in the late 1990's due to the small number of members in the organization.
