Reaching out in love and service
The Mothers' Union is an international Christian membership charity that aims to demonstrate the Christian faith in action through the transformation of communities worldwide.
Here at St Mary’s we are a small group that meets in members' own homes for a programme of talks and activities. Meetings normally take place on the third Wednesday or Thursday of the month at 7.30pm, each beginning with a time of shared prayer.
We also organise outings and theatre trips. In the past few years we have visited Wells and Dewstow Gardens (in Monmouthshire) and enjoyed “Jesus Christ Superstar” ,“West Side Story” and “Annie get your Gun” at the theatre.
In May we produce a “Poverty lunch” for the congregation on Christian Aid Sunday. Our Harvest Festival lunch of shepherd's pie, chicken casserole and cauliflower cheese followed by a fantastic selection of puddings was much appreciated in October.
Visitors are always welcome at our meetings and we would like to encourage new members to join. If you are interested and would like to find out more then please contact our Administrator in the Parish Office.
