And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
Our Mothers’ Union meets in the Callister Hall at 14.15 pm on the second Thursday of each month, when we usually have a short act of worship and a speaker.
The Mothers’ Union is part of the worldwide missionary organisation within the Church of England, founded by Mary Sumner in 1876, and still very much alive throughout the world today.
The aim of the Mothers’ Union is the advancement of the Christian religion in the sphere of marriage and family life.
Meeting Report – February 2020, AGM
Branch Leader Marion Hickson welcomed members and especially Richard South who chaired the meeting. A short act of worship was held, remembering members who were ill.
Reports on the past year were given and it was decided to donate to the Overseas Fund and the MU Caravan. The Committee will remain the same and Brenda Churchhouse thanked them for organising such good monthly meetings.
Brenda Sanderson provided refreshments and Pat Normington brought part of her 80th birthday cake.
The next meeting is on Thursday March 12th, in the Callister Hall, when John Hyland will tell of the Life and Times of a Builder. Visitors, male and female, are very welcome to join us and hear more from this well known gent.
To uphold Christ’s teaching on the nature of marriage, and to promote its wider understanding.
To encourage parents to bring up their children in the faith and life of the Church
To maintain a world-wide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service
To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children
To help those whose family life has met with adversity.
These aims, purposes and objectives set a high standard and give a very wide remit which each member and each branch has to consider carefully in all that they do.
Much of the life and work of the Mothers' Union happens outside the formal meetings, and it is often in this witness that the strength of the Mothers' Union is to be found.
