2017 - The Mothers' Union report

St Mary's branch has met on 11 occasions enjoying a variety of speakers and worship.

We have 26 members and are always pleased to welcome visitors to our meetings. The branch has raised £726.34 which has supported the Famine in Sudan and Away From It All holidays. Part of our subscription is used to support families facing adversity in this country and abroad.

A highlight of the year was the making up of the birthing packs for women in Tanzania. Under the guidance of Gaye Rowlands the branch, along with individuals from the benefice, 35 packs were put together and taken to Tanzania by Antje and Kimi Brandtner.

We have supported the Garden House Hospice with providing cakes for patients and their visitors at afternoon teatime and we reached out into the community with a Garden Party in July.

Everyone is welcome to join the Mothers' Union or come to any of our meetings.
