Balsam Family Project

During 2018 MU in the Oxford Diocese have been forging links with this organisation whose aims are very much in parallel with some of the MU aims and objectives. Balsam is an interchurch Christian charity and is based in Didcot. It provides parenting courses for young vulnerable families and skills development courses.  The families come from Didcot, Abingdon, Wantage, Wallingford, Bicester and the surrounding areas. Mothers’ Union provide refreshments for these twice weekly sessions. At the end of each 10 week course MU provides some of the refreshments for a celebration party which marks the achievements made by the parents. Balsam are currently supporting around 90 families who attend these courses, family days and celebration events. Some MU branches local to Didcot collect goods for Balsam and some purchases are made from the Diocesan Project Fund.

We have promoted our AFIA holidays to this organisation and in the summer of 2018 six families from Balsam Family Project were granted holidays. We very much hope this support will continue.

Verse of the Day

“When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. ‘In Bethlehem in Judea,’ they replied, ‘for this is what the prophet has written: ‘“But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.”’” — Matthew 2:4-6 Listen to chapter Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica.
