Mothers’ Union supports Baby Basics MK

Baby Basics MK is a volunteer-led charity, dedicated to supporting families who are in greatest need in Milton Keynes. They rely on donations of second-hand, but good condition, baby essentials. These are lovingly made into gift packages that give families everything they will need to get started with a new baby, and continue to support them where needed.

Families may be referred to by health professionals, such as health visitor and midwifes, and local churches.

Please remember the volunteers and families in your prayers. Marion Gunning from the Prayer & Spirituality Unit has written this prayer for us…

Heavenly Father, your infant Son was born in a stable then fled into exile with his parents, faced with an uncertain future.  Yet He was sent by you as a gift of Love to share with the world; a gift carried forward by Baby Basics today.
We give thanks for everyone involved in Baby Basics, for the work they do, for the care and support they give and the generosity shown by so many who support their endeavours.  We pray too for the families who seek their help and ask for your blessing on them as their children grow.  We ask this knowing that you care for each and everyone of us.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen
