Coming Meetings & Events
Wednesday 15th February – 2pm in the Church Hall
Our speaker, Daryl Hales, will speak about his challenging life to date: overcoming personal homelessness and alcoholism, and now working with charities such as CAFOD whilst working full-time in retail sales.
It was lovely to see about 28 members, including several from Sandbach Heath and Brereton, turn up on a very cold, snowy day for our Epiphany service and party on Wed 18th Jan.
Canon Rob conducted a Communion Service for us, and reminded us of the importance of Epiphany. After the service he enrolled his mother, Margaret McLaren, as a member of
the Mothers’ Union.
The recent considerable rise in MU fees prompted quite a discussion. Ann Peach, from Brereton and a Trustee of MU, was able to explain where all the fees went to and how MU is in deficit by a considerable amount.
The main theme for the meeting was ‘Who has inspired you?’ and three of our members shared their personal accounts.
The meeting included a very interesting talk by John Clowes, entitled: “Twenty years of garden design and how it happened”.
John began by telling us about his father’s interest in his childhood garden in Timperley but that his own interest and passion only began when he married and had his own home to garden.
Mothers’ Union Cake Stall in aid of Away From It All – A huge ‘Thank You’ from the MU team to everyone who supported last Sunday – Cake bakers and providers and all who donated to our fund. Together we raised a Grand Total of £195.20. Dorothy Wood.
St Luke’s has an active branch of the worldwide Mothers’ Union Christian membership charity. Our branch has around 30 members. Firm friendship and good contacts have been made with other MU groups in the Chester Diocese aiming to help families in as many ways as possible.
We are an open and friendly branch and always delighted to welcome newcomers. We meet monthly in the Church Hall at 2pm on the third Wednesday of the month, usually with an invited speaker or a special activity.
To help with seating and catering, please will members always send their apologies if they are unable to attend a meeting.
If you are interested in joining our branch, just turn up for a meeting or ring Carole or Dorothy.
