Welcome to the website of Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Winchester.
Over the past few months our Mothers’ Union members have been able to return to meeting together and we have returned to having our Monthly Prayer Services in the Cathedral.
Although the Trustees have been meeting regularly over the past 18 months via Zoom, we were pleased to be able to meet face to face in Winchester for our September meeting and to welcome those who, for various reasons, couldn’t physically make it to Winchester via zoom. I know that zoom provides a useful way of meeting remotely but it doesn’t have the same feeling as being in the same room together with others!.
Central Mothers’ Union are continuing to record Midday Prayers everyday which can be found on YouTube and Facebook . These have certainly enabled us to pray together with our friends around the world helping us to feel more connected with our worldwide membership and our linked Diocese.
As we enter the Autumn months we look forward to our Harvest Festivals and give thanks, not only for our food but for all the good gifts God has given us during the past year – the precious gift of medicine and vaccines which have given us the hope of leading a normal life, the precious gift of the service of the NHS and Doctors and Nurses and the precious gift of families and friends.
We will be journeying together for the Modern Slavery Prayer week this month and the vigil for 10 days of Action Against Gender Based Violence in November. Details of these will be in our monthly eNews
As many of you will know we are coming to the end of this Triennial (3 years – in which elected members serve as trustees for the running of the Diocese) which ends on the 31st December and now praying that members will be willing to be nominated and elected to serve on the Trustee Board for the next Triennia starting on 1st January 2022. Please do consider whether this is something which you, or someone you know, could do to help continue the work of the Mothers’ Union in this Diocese. If you wish to know more about what it entails please speak to me, email, or phone me or ask Sue Murphy our Diocesan Secretary – see ‘contact us’ . Nomination forms can be found in the panel on the RHS of this page.
with love in Christ
