MU International Events at St. John's, Kenilworth
Tickets are now available for the two MU International Events happening in February (see home page).
Tickets are now on sale and there is a flyer, together with a proforma for ordering tickets. Both events have been planned to provide an opportunity for meaningful fellowship, entertainment and learning. Interest is already high so please don't delay in ordering your tickets. It would help if branch leaders where possible could coordinate ticket sales for their branch but please note that due to catering requirements tickets are non-refundable.
Metamorphosis 8-Module Course introductory workshop on Friday 27th January at MSH or via zoom on 31st of January
Metamorphosis is for anyone who wants to work for change in their church and community setting. Each module includes a bible study, inspirational case studies, practical and easy to use tools and online discussion forums, to share ideas and learn from other participants. Feedback from the previous two courses has been extremely positive and I would encourage you to prayerfully consider engaging with the introductory workshop with no pressure to sign up for the full course. See flyer for details.
Community of the Cross of Nails (CCN) Plea for help!
The next (CCN) International Gathering of Partners will take place in Coventry from 24th-28th May and Mothers' Union members have been asked to help in two ways - hosting an international visitor or helping to serve refreshments. If you can help in some small way, I know Anne Short would love to hear from you. See flyer for details.
We were also pleased to welcome 10 new members.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Advent Service at Holy Trinity Church, Attleborough on Monday 28th November. There is a photograph on our home page of all of the new members who were enrolled by Karen at the service. It was a joyous occasion, and it was lovely to see so many members and friends.
These are just some of the gifts donated at our Advent Carol Service for children of prisoners at Onley.
16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence
The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign started on Friday 25th November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) and runs until Saturday 10th December (International Day of Human Rights.)
Several Mothers' Union branches have been displaying an empty red chair in their church. It is symbolic of the 1 in 3 women suffering domestic violence but not having a voice or feeling welcome. The chair signifies the absent victim.
