Inspired Folder, Updated November 2017

“Inspired” is a folder that is constantly reviewed and adjusted. We are pleased to share this update.

We hope you will adopt one or more of the ideas from the folder in your branch or deanery. Each page can be downloaded separately from the website.

Take a look at what is needed in your parish or community and see how Mothers’ Union could reach out.

Discuss with your members before you start on a project. Answer some simple questions. Are you able to meet the need? (time, members, funds). How will people know it is a Mothers’ Union project?

If the project is running in another branch, get in touch about the project.

Lastly, let the Action and Outreach Unit committee members know what you are doing, so that we can add it to the folder and share it with others through our website, not just in our own diocese, but with other dioceses and with Mary Sumner House.

Past Events

Mothers’ Union in Barbados

In October 2017 I visited my family in Barbados and was able to join the Mothers’ Union for a meeting.

The Mothers’ Union branch was the Holy Trinity, St Philips, Barbados. They meet on the second Saturday in the month, in the afternoon. They start with worship, using the MU blue and red prayer books along with readings from the Bible. Afterwards a short committee meeting took place, which involved all branch members. They too had projects and also dealt with individuals. While the quiz Q and A from the Bible was in progress, the preparation for the birthday party was taking place.

I was asked to give an overview of my branch meetings and I left details of the Cross in Pocket, which is our latest project. I was given an open invitation to their meetings whenever I am on the island again. We ended with prayers and grace.
