Welcome to Mothers' Union
In Chester le Street....
'We have 80 members - new members are always welcome! Of these about 50-60 attend regularly and are very committed to the Aims of the M.U. Our weekly meetings, held on Monday's at 2.00pm in the Parish Centre, are in the format of a Church Service, with hymns, prayers and a Speaker.
We have a Team of members who assist the Clergy in welcoming and preparing those families who wish to bring forward their children for Baptism, and who also attend the Baptism Service, so presenting a familiar face, and helping to put people at ease.
We meet monthly with the ladies from the other Churches in the Town, and also have Meetings with our fellow members from the other Branches in the Chester-le-Street Deanery - Birtley (St. Johns), Fatfield (St. George's), Lumley (Christ Church), Usworth (St. Michael and All Angels) and Washington (Holy Trinity).
We enjoy fun and fellowship on Social Occasions - participating in concerts, murder mystery evenings - days out (which always include a meal). Here in Chester-le-Street we also organise Coffee Mornings, the proceeds going to our less fortunate members overseas'.
If you would be interested in joining, then please contact the Parish Office.
