Mothers' Union at St John's

As a group we meet at the Underhill Centre on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7.30pm, commencing with a short service.

We have a varied programme of speakers for our meetings followed by tea/coffee and biscuits and time to chat to each other and welcome new members.

Our social activities are very enjoyable – in February we hold a “Gourmet Lunch” expertly cooked by the husband of one of our members. This is to raise funds for the “Family Holiday” run by the Diocesan MU for families who are in need of a break. We usually average 70-80 people for this meal.

In the summer months of July or August when we hold a “Themed Evening” to raise funds for MU Overseas. We have had a Boules evening with French food and an Italian evening so far.

Each month our members are happy to make donations to our ‘Bible Fund’; a fund to buy Bibles for every infant or adult being baptised at St John’s. This fund also received a generous boost from a raffle held at our 2016 Christmas party.

A Mother’s Union prayer service is held in Winchester Cathedral on the 1st Wednesday of each month, and it has been a privilege for our branch to plan and lead this service on several occasions.

We would welcome ladies and gentlemen who would like to join us at any of our meetings. Please see full details of our meetings by clicking on the PDF link below.
