Mothers’ Union

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.  


Anne was leading the short service on the 16th January.  Only 11 of us attended due to many members being ill with the current virus or with other issues and  for whom we prayed. 

We continued with the Wave of Prayer service sheets which was postponed whilst we were in lockdown.  One of the prayers was appropriate as we start the New Year: 

Loving Lord, we thank you for the path laid before us and that you accompany us on our journey.  We pray for the flourishing of Mothers’ Union as we adapt to the needs of this present age and entrust ourselves to God to lead us forward.  Give us open ears, eyes and hearts that we may act with insight and integrity to make a difference in our world.

 We prayed for all our links in Africa and North India, ending with the MU prayer.

Anne had brought along one of her quizzes so enjoyed by members which we tackled whilst refreshments were made and served.  Finally, we joined hands for the Blessing.

Please don’t forget to ‘bring-and-buy’ each meeting, it’s an ideal way to raise funds.  Biscuits and cakes go down well, books, ‘good-as-new’ items etc.  

Our meeting on the 16th February is with Trudie and her ever-popular talks. Church hall, 14.00 hours, refreshments, visitors welcome.
