Mothers’ Union News

Our annual Strawberry Tea will be held on 3rd July in the Garden Room in the Parish Centre from 2-4 pm. The cost for tea or coffee and scones, strawberries and cream will be just £4 – a bargain! The Mothers’ Union national appeal this year is called ‘A Summer of Hope’ and we will be sending the proceeds from the afternoon to it. Please join us whether you are a member or not. 

A Summer of Hope. A quote from the website mothersunion.org.
‘Educating mums in Burundi. Bonding families in Northern Ireland. Uniting communities in South Sudan. These are just a few examples of what Mothers’ Union does for people every day worldwide. By joining in this year’s Summer Appeal you can ensure Mothers’ Union can continue to change the lives of thousands across the planet.

From our founding over 140 years ago we have remained steadfast to a simple aim; to help more families, parents and church groups turn their hopes and prayers into reality. This is only possible with the incredible contributions of people like you.

We need your help to raise an incredible £127,000 this summer so we can continue to help families who desperately need our support. No one family is the same, nor are the issues they face and that is why Mothers’ Union provides a wealth of programmes to support people’s needs. Whether through innovative education programmes in places which otherwise would have no educational opportunities, or support in financial planning and business start-up advice to parenting lessons to ensure that families communicate and thrive together in faith and love.’

Our AGM is on 10th July when we will remind ourselves of this year’s activities and look forward to the Autumn Programme. Margaret Stears the Diocesan MU online shop representative will be joining us and bringing a selection of the MU items which can be ordered via the internet. We look forward to welcoming her.

Friday August 9th will be Mary Sumner day. Please join us for a cuppa and natter in the Garden Room from 2.30pm onwards.

September 19th is the opening date for our next year when we will meet for a short service in St Mary’s Church at 8.00 pm with time for refreshments and a chat afterwards.
