MOTHERS’ UNION

 

The Mothers’ Union was started by Mary Sumner in 1876, it was started in her own home to support and develop their faith in each other. Mary was a bishop’s wife, a mother and grandmother. The Mothers’ Union is now in 83 countries and has over 4 million members and has a voice at the UN, there is over 93,000 members in the UK. The branch at St Peter’s was started in 1947.

We meet once a month on the second Thursday at 2-30.

The Mothers’ Union is committed to promoting and support of family life, encouraging parents in the faith of their children. Being a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service. Campaigning for conditions in society to stable family life and the protection of children and helping those families whose lives are met with adversity. We at St Peter’s have been raising funds for AFIA ( away from it all) making emergency bags for the women’s refuge and knitting hats for new born babies at the James Paget Hospital.

We have two services a year with the other branches here in the Waveney and Yare group. In October we go to the Cathedral in Norwich for a service with all the groups in the Norwich diocese.

New members are always welcome to come and see what we get up to. The meeting start with a short service of worship followed by a speaker or making things.

This coming year we have speakers on being a school nurse, old Lowestoft and making something for Easter also Jeremy and Mark Ellis.
