Mothers’ Union

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 24th February at 2pm for the AGM when Christine Alston’s and Marion ‘s groups will be the hostesses and for Corporate Communion on Tuesday 4th March. We welcome all members to this meeting including Evening MU members.

Please can you make sure you have paid your MU Subs of £19 for 2018 as soon as possible in early February.

We are planning to visit St John the Baptist‘s Church MU at Pilling on Wednesday 25th April to see a variety of embroidery items produced for church worship including stoles and altar cloths. We hope to have more information about this soon.

We were sorry to lose two more members at the end of December, Doris Daykin and Kath Wilkinson. Our condolences have been sent to their families.

The theme for MU prayers for this month is ‘In Mary Sumner’s footsteps’ and ‘Stepping forward together.’

The road the righteous travel is like the sunrise, getting brighter and brighter until daylight has come. Proverbs 4:18

Loving Lord, we thank you for each other and the joy of journeying together on the path you have called us to walk.
We give thanks for Mary Sumner, and for all who have gone before. For our heritage and shared values, which unite us with members across the world. We pray for the many Mothers Union initiatives to nurture flourishing relationships. Equip our members to share the love of Christ through acts of compassion and generous deeds. Lord, we give thanks for your faithfulness. Be with us as we journey onwards together. Guide our steps as we follow your path. May we continue to enrich family life for future generations. Amen

On Tuesday 10th July I have booked a visit to Jacqueline Iddon’s Garden which has a hot Mediterranean garden with bottle wall and folly for sun loving plants. There is a Victorian fern house and a walled garden and a woodland walkway for shade loving plants and a large stream fed pond planted with a wide range of unusual foliage & flowering plants, alongside climbing roses, clematis, shrubs & herbaceous borders. There is a large garden studio and conservatory with indoor seating as insurance against the weather. This will be the EMU’s group outing but will be brought forward to arrive at about 5pm for Afternoon Tea. I am hoping to book a coach and we would start with Afternoon Tea. More details and cost will be advertised later.
