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.  


           Sheila L led our meeting on the 19th October and it was appropriate that she began by referring to Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of musicians, as she had also organised a music quiz. All Saints Day occurs shortly and it was this Saint she referred to and gave a potted history of her life. The chosen hymns for our short service were, as usual, sung with gusto and Janet read a passage from the bible.

The musical quiz followed; members were tasked with naming a popular song and singer of the 1960s, a point each. Heavy concentration followed with lots of humming and brain searching for singers and songs ‘right-on-the-tip-of-my-tongue’ and, sometimes, no further! The winning team was given a two-bar, dark chocolate Kit-kat which they immediately scoffed as tea had arrived. Thank you Sheila for all your hard work.

The good news is that Helen B has agreed to become a member and will be enrolled at our next meeting on the 16th November in the church hall at 14.00 hours when, making a welcome return, the speaker will be our curate Becki.

The not so good news is that subs have increased to £36.00. It would be most helpful for Sheila if members could pay this at our meeting next month.

Visitors are always welcome.
