About The Mothers' Union
The Mothers Union started in 1876 with Mary Sumner who brought together parents in her parish to build their confidence in bringing up their children in the Christian faith.
Today The Mothers Union has grown into an international charity with over 4m members in 83 countries, including the UK, with the aim of promoting stable marriage, family life and the protection of children through prayer, campaigning and practical support.
Mothers' Union Prayer Loving Lord, We thank you for your love so freely given to us all. Bless the work of the Mothers' Union as we seek to share your love through the encouragement, strengthening and support of marriage and family life. Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship, and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world. In Jesus' name, Amen.
On November 8th, Canon John Gravell was our guest speaker and his topic was "being a saint". Being a saint does not depend on what we do, but on God's call. If we respond to His call and trust in Him, we are sanctified in Christ Jesus, and enter into a new relationship with Him. We do not become perfect beings, but are a work in progress. Alleluia! The picture shows Canon John (left)with our vicar the Rev. Adrian Teale during the meeting.
