2017 Calendar of Events

Mothers’ Union
at St Mary Magdalene

Our local work at St Mary Magdalene is threefold:

  1. A diverse programme of discussion topics are designed to meet the interests and needs of people within the local community. From health education and parenting, to knitting baby clothes for the neonatal unit and still-born babies at our local hospital, our programmes are designed to meet the needs of people at the local level
  2. Members in our branch are involved in hospital visiting as well as helping to arrange the diocesan 'Away From It All (AFIA)' holiday scheme for disadvantaged families. Members also help with the parish food bank, family care, Noah's Ark under 5's worship and 'Time Travelling', an educational pilgrimage for key-stage 1-2 children in our parish and at Southwell Minster. We also help support our parish Priest
  3. All of our work is underpinned by prayer and the Christian faith of our members.
