Families First is to undergo some changes in 2019.
They are responding to members’ feedback to make Families First more focused on faith, key family issues for Christians today and on the work of Mothers’ Union. They will be producing four substantial magazines a year from 2019 with this updated content.
The changes will also reduce the burden on branch administration as members will subscribe directly with Mary Sumner House. In addition, it will save branches time and effort as Families Worldwide (our prayer diary) is distributed through Families First.
This document may help with any queries you may have.
Here is a form for new subscribers; please encourage members to subscribe to this new version of Families First, it’s only £10 a year!
On 14th July over 200 members gathered at Dorchester Abbey to give thanks for the work of Mothers’ Union in Oxford Diocese over the past 130 years, and to look forward to the challenges ahead.
During the service, many banners were processed and we listened to two wonderful pieces of music especially written for our Mothers’ Union.
Bishop Steven preached on the text “The harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few: therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest” (Luke 10.2), and we also heard about some of our diocesan projects and prayer links.
Many thanks to all those involved in making this day a wonderful celebration of Mothers’ Union in our diocese.
