Some pictures of St Andrew’s Mothers’ Union
The Mothers' Union in St Andrew’s is growing year by year, which is wonderful. The Purpose of the MU is to be especially concerned with all that strengthens and preserves marriage and Christian family life.
The aim of the Mothers’ Union is the advancement of the Christian religion in the sphere of marriage and family life. In order to carry out its Aim, its Objects are:
Anyone can join the Mothers’ Union; men, women and children who have been baptised. We aim to ‘turn darkness into light’ by assisting the Mothers’ Union to spend wisely where the need is greatest. We raise money throughout the year by running a monthly produce stall after the Sunday Communion service. All members of the congregation make items for the stall and proceeds are split 50:50 with the Church.
We give our share of the money raised to support the work of the Mothers’ Union: including AFIA, The Wheels Appeal, Mary Sumner House, Diocesan Fund; Cook Books for Students at the University in Ipswich; Action and Outreach; The Literacy Project; etc., etc.
Members serve the church and wider community in a variety of ways. Taking part in Messy church, Hands On, singing in the choir, Jubilee Lunch Club, Co-ordinating Fairtrade stall and more.
At a special Sunday morning service at Candlemass in January this year our Rector Revd. Paul Hambling commissioned our new Branch Leader: Janet Lavender together with our other office holders. Christine Ward Diocesan President then admitted Paul as our newest member. We hope this will encourage other men in our Parish to join. We also announced our change of name from Woodbridge Group Ministry Evening Mothers’ Union to St Andrew’s Melton Mothers’ Union. After the service we shared a celebratory cake with the congregation.
Come and join us,
along with more than 4 million others in the world and start to make a difference today!!
