There has been a branch of the Mothers’ Union at St Stephen’s for well over 100 years and today’s members continue to support Christian family life with prayer and practically & financially both locally, at a Diocesan level and worldwide.
We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the each month at 2.15pm. in the Church Hall when we have a speaker or a discussion of a topical social policy eg. the commercialisation of childhood linking to the Mothers’ Union “Bye,Bye Childhood” campaign. We also have seasonal services and creative meetings. In June we usually have an Outing and an evening Supper and Compline in July. August is a social month and we have almost created a tradition of going out for Fish & Chips. The Diocese holds an Advent service where we meet friends old and new and we visit other local branches throughout the year.
A Friday morning Toddler Group – Nutkins- meets in the Church Hall in term time under the umbrella of the St Stephen’s Mothers’ Union branch.
All of this is underlined with prayer and once a year we specially gather for our “slot” to remember members in linked Dioceses in a Wave of Prayer worldwide 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
