16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence

Begins on 25th November and ends on 10th December 2016

Join us for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, to call for an end to all forms of violence against women and girls – One in three women across the world will be affected by domestic violence at some point in their life.

Some of you may recall that last year Mothers’ Union had a designated area, in Church, to pray for those who have been abused, neglected or overlooked. Useful resources were also available to take away…

This year there will also be an opportunity to write your prayer to God and attach it to a prayer tree. Please spend a few moments remembering those who need our prayers…

On December 2nd from 11 a.m. –noon there will be a diocesan vigil at St. Peter and Paul Kettering, as part of the 16 days. The vigil will be followed by a faith lunch.

Everybody is welcome to attend.

This is a very important ‘campaign’ and our support is essential.

If members are unable to come perhaps they could spend some time quietly in prayer either in groups or individually. After all prayer underpins all that we do .

Thank you.

Uppingham Branch Continuing Their Good Work

Join the MU heritage

Do you recognise the people in the photo below?


Audrey Day MU member (far right) hosted a gathering of MU branch leaders.   In order of service we have Brenda Mason, Edna Quinlan, Ione Roseveare.  Elizabeth Megahey. Sonja Lennon and Chris.  Chris Maskell was followed by Robin Robson and I followed her in 2013.  We remain a large branch, but need new members to carry on the work in our community, and support to the work of MU worldwide.  Each year we send over £2000 to support the work of MU overseas.

Are you passionate about supporting Christian family life?  Members are actively and prayerfully involved in supporting our Sunday school/ the foodbank/ the choir/ the prayer group/ the Daylight centre/ Messy church/ Open the Book/ children’s activities for Christmas at Uppingham/ baptismal follow up/ house groups/ church fundraising and the roving players who have entertained us at Harvest!

Next year we have a full programme of meetings, speakers, quiet days and outings.  Come and join us to continue the heritage.  Full details available from Jill Cannings.
