Website update MAY 2022

Our evolving response to the effects of a global pandemic combined with the start of a new triennium presents an opportunity to look to the future with fresh vision as we adapt and learn to thrive in these changing times.
In 2020/21, Mothers' Union members showed amazing resilience, responsiveness and adaptability. Now is the time to build on this experience to:
Transform ourselves, personally and spiritually, to live out our faith
Transform the churches and communities we work with and of which we are a part to reflect Christ's kingdom
Transform Mothers' Union to be relevant for 21st century life.
It is hoped that these theme resources will provide a starting point for this transformation.
For with God nothing shall be impossible (Luke 1:37)
Whilst we had looked forward to providing an enjoyable stay in our caravan to the families who would have visited this year, it was necessary to cancel all AFIA holidays for 2020. Further news will be posted soon.
Our 2020 membership is 2811 and we now have 113 Branches in the Blackburn Diocese.
