Mothers’ Union (MU) is a World wide organisation present in 77 countries. The purpose is to share Christ’s Love by encouraging, strengthening and supporting families and family life throughout the world. We are fortunate at St Michael's to have a very active MU with many members of all ages.
Meetings take place on the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7:30 pm in Church House (the building just up the path from the Church). Each month begins with a short service; we then have a guest speaker and refreshments. There is great fellowship in these evenings and they are much appreciated and enjoyed by all who attend. Anyone is welcome to attend without joining and this includes men.
Many of the activities are aimed at raising funds to help those in other countries who are in desperate need, suffering extreme poverty and starvation. We also help and support charities and concerns closer to home. Fund raising takes many forms including concerts, special guest speakers, an annual stall in High Wycombe, lunches, coffee mornings, garden parties and much more.
The MU also supports many initiatives in the Church including: Tiny Tots Services; Mums and Toddlers Bible Study Mornings; JC Club and Sunday Crèche; Infant Baptisms and ongoing Christian care of the children; “Away from it All” Holidays to enable the needy to have a well earned break and acting as ‘Welcomers’ at Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford. In addition the MU provides support for those who may be unwell or need support in our church and the community.
Do feel free to attend any meeting - you will be made very welcome. If you have any questions or need help contact the MU representative whose details are in the Parish Magazine.
