NESTON MOTHERS’ UNION
We meet monthly as a Branch on the second Wednesday of the month at 1.30pm in St Mary & St Helen Parish Church and visitors are always welcome. We participate in the Communion Service and afterwards enjoy fellowship and refreshments in the West end of the Parish Church. Some months we have Speakers on various topics.
Our members participate in local and diocesan projects and fundraise for the worldwide work of the Society. Neston Mothers’ Union is a Branch of Mothers’ Union in Chester Diocese which is a Registered Charity (Number 221214). Neston Branch has 32 members.
We are a grassroots organization with a global vision
Before Easter we run Lent lunches consisting of home-made soup and crusty bread on a couple of Fridays in the Parish Church. The proceeds usually go to the Relief Fund. This enables grassroots Mothers’ Union members to be a source of hope in their local communities when emergencies strike either through natural disaster or man-made conflict.
|In the Autumn we have a fund-raising event or afternoon tea for our Worldwide Fund. Mothers’ Union works with thousands of communities to enable development of all kinds: economic, relational, personal and spiritual. Our local action aims to empower people to support themselves to achieve lasting positive change.|
|Two of our members run a sales table at various times in aid of AFIA (Away from it All), a holiday scheme helping families who have met with adversity.|
In the Parish we give a children’s Bible to all Baptism Candidates and send Baptism Anniversary Cards for two years afterwards.
Members run a ‘Knit and Natter’ group fortnightly which is very popular and open to all.
Some of our members run and support the Stay and Play group on a Friday morning (9.15 – 11.15am) in Neston Parish Church for families and carers with pre-school children.

Mothers’ Union Prayer
Loving Lord, We thank you for your love so freely given to us all.
We pray for families around the world.
Bless the work of the Mothers' Union as we seek to share your love through the encouragement, strengthening and support of marriage and family life.
Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship, and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world.
In Jesus' name.
Let us go forward rejoicing that God loves us and gives us all we need for life.
As the children of God, we take his love into the world that others may also have the fullness of life
as part of his family. Amen
