Coventry MU President and Trustees Commissioning Service
Posted March 2016
Jane Hill (pictured) was Commissioned as the new Coventry Mothers' Union President, together with the Board of Trustees on Saturday 27th February 2016.
Jane was presented to Bishop Christopher by our outgoing President (Di Sliwinski) to be Commissioned into her new role. Jane went on to then present each of her Trustees to be commissioned and prayed over by Bishop Christopher. It was a very special occasion for us all and we were privileged to have our wonderful Bishop join us after the service for refreshments and to talk to many of us. More photographs of the day can be seen in our photo gallery.
Reaffirmation and Commissioning Worldwide President and Trustees
Posted March 2016
Another very special event took place on 1st March 2016 when our Worldwide President, Lynne Tembey was reaffirmed and this triennial's trustee board were commissioned by Archbishop Justin Welby at Lambeth Palace.
Mothers' Union is certainly having a very special year - all this, and we're 140 years old!
Presentation of the Cross of Nails
Posted March, 2016
Di Sliwinski (outgoing Coventry MU President) worked hard at securing our partnership with the Community of the Cross of Nails prior to her term ending.
The Cross of Nails was blessed at a moving service at the end of 2015, and during our Diocesan Advent Service Di was presented with the Coventry MU's Cross of Nails by Canon Rev. Sarah Hills (both pictured on the right). Another moving service and a fitting end of term for Di. We wish Di all the best as she moves on to other things and, knowing her as we do, she won't sit still for long, if at all!
