Mothers’ Union
Our meeting in October was an excellent afternoon when we remembered ‘when we never had it so good!’ Alan Banes entertained us with history, politics, some movies and pop stars with whom we could sing along while thinking of 1958 to 59. Everybody enjoyed it as always and memories of Blackpool at that time were also revived. We welcomed some new faces and hope that they will come again. Our next meeting will be our Christmas lunch at the North Euston Hotel Fleetwood. This is on Wednesday 5th December. The cost of £22 includes the coach journey The coach will collect us at the bus stop at the back of Booths on Blackpool Old Road opposite the taxi rank at 12 noon. There will be a raffle at the lunch so we welcome raffle prizes.

The theme for MU prayers for December is In Mary Sumner’s footsteps- Steps to the stable Make straight the paths

In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all people will see it together. Isaiah 40:3, 5

As we make our journey though Advent we straighten out the pathways which lead us to the glory of the Lord.
Prepare the way of the Lord!
He is the light that comes to darkness, he is the strength that comes to weakness, he is the wind we hear approaching
like a mighty roar of thunder.
The Lord is near! Prepare his way, and sing praises, all ye people!
As we travel to worship our newborn King we take each step with hope and joy. Amen

Evening Mothers’ Union
On Tuesday 13th November, we had a challenging quiz organised by Gill Shepherd. She was an excellent ‘quizmaster’ and we all enjoyed it thoroughly and learnt some new facts. Our next meeting will be our Christmas get together on Tuesday 11th December at Sue Brownbridge’s home. Please remember to bring a Secret Santa and contact June or Dorothy or Barbara Rowland if you need a lift.

Advance notice
Our New Year meal will be on Tuesday 8th January at the Shard Riverside Inn. There is a list to make your choices and the cost will be £22 which needs to be paid at our next meeting.
