We are ELUCO, which stands for East London United Church Outreach. In 1984 Richards Memorial, Rowntree, Gethsemane and Trinity United Churches banded together in common cause to address the problems of poverty in East London. Subsequently, two other London United Churches, Siloam and First-St. Andrew's joined the group. Initially called the East London United Church Outreach Cluster, the joint project was incorporated in 2007 under its current name. As such, we are a Mission & Service and Westminster College Foundation Fund ministry and act as an important outreach function of the London Conference of the United Church of Canada. We are also generously funded by the Sisters of St. Joseph and the Maycourt Club of London ON.
