At the diocesan A.G.M. Bishop John was our speaker. He told us about his visits to Sudan where one of our prayer links, Rumbek, is. It was really good to get to know about the people there and to realise about the problems that they have to overcome and also their enthusiasm for Mothers’ Union. In the picture Jill Goodman, our worldwide coordinator, is giving the vote of thanks.
This was a very happy, celebratory evening at Eye. As we waited for the service to start we listened to the music group playing and watched a Powerpoint of pictures about the history of the branch. The service was very well attended by members of the branch, the deanery and the diocese who really enjoyed it. The theme for the evening was Faith in Action, a true sense of what the branch had achieved in the last 100 years.
After the service we all met together for fellowship and refreshments (as always they were delicious) and of course no celebration is complete without a cake.
