MOTHERS’ UNION @stmarywarsash

 

Faith is at the core of what we do. Across the world in 84 countries, 4 million Mothers Union members respond daily to the needs of hundreds of thousands of people in their communities.

2019 brings new beginnings for MU Worldwide. Elections have taken place under our new Constitution and for the first time we have a Worldwide President from outside the United Kingdom. Sheran Harper, though born in the UK, grew up in Guyana. We also said goodbye to Lynne Temby, our previous WW President, who was awarded an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen in the New Year’s Honour list.

2019 is also an exciting year for our branch. There has been a branch of Mothers Union at St Mary’s since 1894. We look forward to celebrating 125 years as a Branch on Wednesday 27 February with a Service of Thanksgiving in Church at 2pm followed by afternoon tea.

This year Portsmouth Diocese take pleasure in welcoming members from our worldwide movement to the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 17 September and Wednesday 18 September. There will be Services in the Cathedral at 3pm and 6.00pm and the General Meeting will be held in the Guildhall on Wednesday 18 September.

Our theme for 2019 is Listening, Observing, Acting in step with God. This is a global project with members having discussions across the world to address basic questions about Mothers Union. Questions like ‘whose lives should we be reaching?’, ‘what difference should we be making in peoples lives?’ Here at St Mary’s we are looking at ways in which we can reach out and make a difference. We join with other branches in the Portsmouth Diocese funding days out for families and anyone who has been through a difficult time or do not have family support nearby. We also support the ‘ Leaving Boxes’ for the Women’s Refuge and we knit and sew for the Neo Natal Unit at QA Hospital.
Our branch meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 2pm in the Church Hall. We welcome all to join us for fellowship and refreshments.
