Mothers Union Fellowship

Mothers' Union Banner

 At the Annual General Meeting of the St Laurence Church Mothers’ Union Branch, members made the very difficult decision to change the format of the branch.  We will cease to operate as a branch, but will thankfully be able to continue to have a presence in the life of our parish church, supporting the values, objectives and aims of the Mothers’ Union, as a ‘Mothers’ Union Fellowship’.   The Fellowship Group is to replace the branch so that we will be cared for by the Archdeaconry President and the Committee.  A Fellowship is in effect a prayer group of Mothers’ Union members.

This means that with effect from January 2016, we will not have a programme with regularly monthly meetings and speakers, and there will be no need to have Officers such as Secretary or Treasurer.  

We will continue to worship together at the Corporate Communion on the first Friday of each month at the 9.30am service at St Laurence Church, as well as support the Cathedral Prayer Time at 12noon on the last Thursday of each month.   Please check the weekly pew leaflets or church notice boards for any events planned during the course of the year ahead.

If you are able to, please visit www.mothersunion.org to find out what the MU is all about.  Members are not all mothers, or even all women.  They are single, married, parents, grandparents, or young adults just beginning to express their social conscience.  You will find information on the website of all the membership options to suit every lifestyle.

Flower Guild

The Flower Guild at St Laurence are responsible for the flowers in our church – whether the week by week arrangements or something for a special occasion.

Weekly flowers are managed on a rota basis.

Our beautiful church building is also ideal for festivals and special occasions.  Such an event usually has the whole team involved in distinctive and beautiful arrangements.

If you are an enthusiastic flower arranger and would like to join the group please contact Gwen Brown or the Church Office.

New members always welcome.
