    The World Wide Mothers’ Union Plan and Theme for the Future

    “Time for Transformation is Now “

    As we approach the start of a new Triennium at Mothers’ Union with the Commissioning of our new President Margy Tasker –Brown and the Diocesan Officers by The Right Reverend John Packer Assistant Bishop  of Newcastle in the Cathedral Church of St Nicholas on Saturday 19th February 2022 11am.

    The Worldwide Mothers Union Members are looking forward towards a fresh vision this is the Theme and Goal for 2022 Transformation Now”

    Throughout the Covid 19 Global Pandemic all the members did show incredible Strength, Resilience and Adaptability to carry on helping others.

    As an Organisation the members were forced to changes their ways especially, how members worked so they could continue to give support for those in our Worldwide Communities, who needed help and who would Benefit from the various Mothers’ Union Services, which I did in my Branch.

    This is the Time to:-

    Transform Mothers Union to be Relevant for 21st Century Life.

    Transform ourselves personally and spiritually to live out our Faith.

    Transform the Church and the Communities we work with and of which are a part, to reflect Christ Kingdom.

    “For with God nothing shall be impossible “(Luke 1:37)

    There will be various steps to achieve “Transformation “when we start thinking about the changes either for ourselves, our Churches and Communalities or lastly the Mothers’ union.

    We tend to look at our experiences and the way things have been done in the past.

    During periods of the lockdown and social distancing Mothers Union took on a “New Whole Look”, we have had to adapt and learn to thrive in these changing times, as we start new Triennium we must move forward, change how we can meet and keep in touch in 2022 and future years. Still have Faith Fun and Friendship.
