Pakefield Church’s Mothers’ Union meets from 2.00 – 3.30pm in the Church Hall on the third Thursday of each month. They are a friendly group of ladies (although men may also join). Some of them run the monthly Teddy Edward Club in church for babies and pre-school children and their parents. They also host and lead the Living for Life course that we run as part of our marriage preparation course. And two of them are the Diocesan organisers of AFIA (Away From It All) holidays for families who need a break but who can’t afford it.
PAKEFIELD MOTHERS’ UNION
Before the closure of all churches, the programme ‘Loving for Life’ took place in All Saints church on the 14th March.
Seeking to support couples prepare for marriage were Rev. Sharon, who first took them through the ceremony, and Marguerite Phillips, a facilitator from Mothers’ Union. This is a special day which brings couples together in order to focus on each other and their relationship as led by Rev. Sharon and Marguerite.
Time is also set aside for the couples to choose their music with Terry the organist, listen to our excellent wedding choir singing their repertoire of tunes appropriate for weddings, book the church flowers and bells.
Tea and coffee facilities were on hand throughout the morning and a two-course lunch prepared by members of Pakefield Branch was provided, after which there were more discussions within the groups.
Couples are facing hard times as most of the country shuts down for an indeterminable time and your prayers would be appreciated.
DUE TO THE CURRENT VIRUS EMERGENCY, ALL MEETINGS AT BRANCH AND DIOCESAN LEVELS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
