Ollerton and Boughton has a thriving branch of the Mother’s Union.
The Mothers’ Union is a worldwide Christian organisation which believes in the importance of families. Its aim and purpose is to demonstrate the Christian faith in action by the transformation of communities worldwide through the nurture of the family in its many forms. More information about the Mothers Union can be found by clicking on this linkhttp://www.themothersunion.org/
Despite its name men are welcomed.
We usually meet at 2pm on the 1st Monday in the month for faith, fellowship and fun. Meetings commence with an act of worship lasting about 20 mins followed by a speaker. Recently we have heard about Family Care in Nottinghamshire, A Journey of Faith, The Police Aid Convoy and Operation Christmas Child. Members responded to Operation Christmas Child by filling shoe boxes with toys, toiletries, sweets, hats and gloves to be delivered by the charity ‘Samaritan’s Purse’ to disadvantaged children in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
The Mothers’ Union Prayer
we thank you for your love
so freely given to us all.
We pray for the families around the world.
Bless the work of the Mother’s 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.
