A Jubilee Celebration


On 1st June our Mothers’ Union met to enjoy an evening in celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.  The Queen has not only reigned for 70 years but has been the Patron of Mothers’ Union for 70 years.


Our evening started with a short service, praying for the Queen and thanking her for her devoted service and dedication throughout her seventy years on the throne.


Afterwards we all enjoyed a special jubilee quiz, which proved really entertaining and informative.  We then had a very interesting discussion on how the role of women has changed over the past 70 years.


The Diocesan Mothers’ Union AGM takes place at on Wednesday 6th July at 10.30 am at Trinity House, to which everyone is invited and our branch meeting is scheduled for the evening at 8.00 pm.


We will be holding our annual afternoon tea in aid of the Summer of Hope Appeal on Wednesday 3rd August.
