You are warmly invited to a Celebratory Lunch on Saturday, 15th October at 12.30pm at St Nicholas Church, Warwick to meet Provincial President Kathryn Anderson.
I can also confirm that Rev Denise Burgess will be leading a Eucharist so we can also look forward to a special time of worship as we gather together.
For those branches/diocesan members’ friendship groups who participated in the President’s Challenge, there will be an opportunity to showcase your new ideas or initiatives.
Please simply bring along some pictures of an event or an item with a brief description of why, how and who benefitted or due to benefit - assuming it’s a winter initiative and still to take place.
On arrival you will find tables available for display purposes and if anyone would like to speak in more detail about their initiative during lunch that would be great but please let me know, in advance, so as I can ensure there will be time for you to do that.
Attached is a flier with details so please use this to spread the word. Remember this is an ideal opportunity to bring that friend along that wants to know more about Mothers’ Union.
Finally, donations of cakes would be much appreciated. Can you please email Nicola to let her know that you will be bringing some!
With love and thanks,
Zoom Business Meeting
Our very first business meeting via zoom will be on Wednesday 5th October at 6.30pm. You should have received the Zoom invitation and associated paperwork. If you haven't, please contact Nicola.
Diocesan President's Challenge
Karen launched the Diocesan President's Challenge at the Branch Leader's meeting in January. Each branch will be given £25 to use to further the aims and objectives of MU. As this is HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and taking account of our Theme Transformation – Now! Karen feels that this is a wonderful way of encouraging members to work together to come up with new creative ideas to further the aims and objectives of MU within their locality.
This should be a fun challenge and will encourage members to think outside the box about whose lives they want to transform. Branches must also come prepared to showcase what they have done at Members’ Day in October!
Karen is also hoping Diocesan Members will get involved with the President’s challenge also either via their local branch or within a Diocesan Members’ friendship group.
Diocesan Commissioning Service
We enjoyed an inspiring Diocesan Commissioning service at St John Baptist Church, Berkswell on Saturday 29th January. We were delighted to welcome Bishop John to commission Karen as Diocesan President along with the Trustees and our new chaplain.
