First Thursday in the month and a few of us were at our Cathedral for Midday Prayers  unfortunately we missed some of our regulars who were unable to be with us, although Helen Brunton prepared the prayers for todays service - thank you Helen. We stayed on for 12 30 weekly Communion Service and we were truly blessed with Canon Claire taking it. Also good to hear our MU Newcastle and our Action and Outreach with Diana Macnaughton prayed for in the Intercessions

Christchurch MU, North Shields


Christchurch MU have enjoyed meeting back together and recently had an interesting talk based on a painting by William Dyce with the unusual name of ‘Pegwell Bay Kent a recollection of Oct 5th 1858.’
Through the painting Jean, the speaker challenged our own preconceptions of what we really believe and gave us the opportunity to reflect on what is truly important as we consider Transformation - now.
Following our service yesterday Susan shared information about her Ukrainian friend and her family and Russian friends in St Petersburg who are also saddened by the current situation. As always the Mothers Union is concerned for all those in adversity and we know how much friends appreciate our prayerful and practical support.

7 families from a local Refuge were treated to a trip out to ‘Inflatanation’- an inflatable activity space funded by a Mothers’ Union local group. 

”It was good when we tried to bury ourselves in the ball pool”

”We don’t ever get to do this”

’A big thanks to Mothers’Union- new families met each other and kids made new friends. This was a lovely activity for getting to know each other and letting off lots of Christmas excitement.’
