Outreach
Norbury had their first outreach event in May since Covid. It was a Coffee Morning for the residents of Edwards Court Retirement Apartments. Events there are always well received by the residents, and they have lovely facilities. It was organised by Brenda and Eileen, our social concern reps. It raised £180 for AFIA and neo-natal projects.



Jubilee Celebrations
Norbury branch decided to make a Tapestry which represented the life of their church at the time of the Platinum Jubilee by getting each group in church to contribute what defined their role at Norbury.
 
They also had a Jubilee Lunch. Pictured is Maureen Allan who willingly bakes incredible cakes for every occasion at Church. The children call her 'The Cake Lady'.

York Provincial Service in Liverpool Cathedral
On Saturday, 6th November Lynne Hibbert and I (Di Waller both from Henbury MU) set off to Liverpool to attend the Mothers’ Union Provincial Eucharist. Can I say that Liverpool Cathedral is the first Cathedral we have been in where we had to take our coats off as it was so warm.
The procession of banners at the start of the service made your skin tingle, it was such a lovely sight. The Right Reverend Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool preached. He is an MU member and wore his MU facemask. His sermon was thoughtful, short and amusing. He talked a lot about the work of the Mothers’ Union and the work we do in this country and abroad. It was a lovely service starting with the rousing hymn “Tell Out My Soul” followed by “Love Divine”, “Be Still for the Presence of the Lord” and ending with “Lord for that Word’’. We had a great day and returned home having experienced a lovely afternoon with MU friends, worship and fellowship.

 


Annual Gathering 2022
The good news is that we will be holding our Annual Gathering in Belfast in 2022 - with a Cathedral service on Friday 23rd September and the Annual Gathering at the International Conference Centre on Saturday 24th September, so put the dates in your diary now!

Office Meeting Room Available
The first group used the meeting room at the office on 18th June. It all went very well and it was lovely to welcome members into the office.
I would love to have more groups visiting the office.
