Mothers’ Union Oct 2023

On Thursday 18th October, we welcomed Jean McLaren to speak about her life as the wife of a vicar. She entitled her talk: “A Pot of Coffee, a Jam Muffin and 17 Pairs of Welly
Boots!”

She first of all told us the story of how they met, with Jean working in the Birkenhead Bookshop and a certain curate who kept coming in and ordering obscure books! They at
least did have a shared faith…….
