Mothers' Union

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.  Following the relaxation of COVID restrictions, we are able to meet again monthly in the Church Hall at 2pm on the third Wednesday of the month, usually with an invited speaker or 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.

MU April-May 2022

For our April meeting we welcomed Shena Lewington, a Funeral Celebrant, based in Winterley, who gave us a lovely talk entitled ‘Hatch, Match and Dispatch’.

Shena has been invited to give talks on the Queen Mary sailing across to New York, so we were honoured to have her practice run on her talk, which she introduced with the idea of ‘Telling the Bees’. In days gone by people told the bees about happenings in the village, including rites of passage.
