Mothers’ Union
Our next meeting will be the outing on Wednesday July 5th when we are going to Raymond Smith’s Stones and Roses Garden at Chorley from 2-4pm. We are joining the coach at St Chad’s Church Hall at 12.45pm. Have your lunch beforehand; we will have tea and a cream scone at the garden,

At St Chad’s we are raising money for the Caravan Project to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Blackburn Diocese Mothers’ Union. We have a quiz and hope that our members will sell at least 3 quizzes at £1 each. These are available now.

There will be a Service of Thanksgiving at the Cathedral to celebrate 90 years of MU in Blackburn Diocese on Saturday 14th October at 3pm when we will bring the money we have raised. It is hoped that there will be a coach for the deanery to go to the service.

The theme for MU prayers for July is Steps of faith.

What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

We set our feet once again on the way walked by Jesus.

These steps of peace may be difficult in a terrain that slopes toward violence.

These steps of justice may prove tiring as we walk against the winds of injustice.

These steps of love may be painful with so much hatred to step over and bump up against.

Give us the wisdom

Give us the strength to take these steps anyway.

Each day a new step.

Each step a faithful movement toward your kingdom.

Each step taken only by your grace only in your power our Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer. Amen.

Evening Mothers’ Union

Fourteen members enjoyed the Tour of the Lightworks on Tuesday 13th June. Several of us had a go at using the lever to switch on the lights and we learnt a great deal more about our famous illuminations.

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 11th July and is called ‘Who do you think you are?’ Members can talk about an interesting memory or something you found out about a relative of yours.
