Easthampstead Branch Celebrate 125 years

As Easthampstead Mothers’ Union were asked to lead our Family Worship on 4th September, we took the opportunity to make the service a celebration of our 125 years as a branch. We were joined by Gillian Johnson, Margaret Barnes and Jean Vaughan as well as one former Easthampstead member who had travelled from Exeter to be with us. We had also received messages of prayers and good wishes from those who were unable to attend including Lynne Tembey and Bishop Andrew Proud. Thanks to our former secretary, Jo Gosling, we also received a letter of congratulations from our Patron, the Queen.

In our research prior to the service, we discovered that the telephone was patented in 1876. This seemed an appropriate theme to use through our talk as so much of the work of Mothers’ Union relies on communication. Five members represented and spoke about different eras since Mary Sumner founded Mothers’ Union in the same year.

Following the service, the congregation were served refreshments by members who had worked hard to produce enough Mothers’ Union fairy cakes for everyone.
