Please note that our Autumn meeting will now be held at Christ Church, Northcourt Road, Abingdon, OX14 1PL.
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.
The new membership form with our 2018 subscriptions is available here…
Please click on the link below to download our 130th anniversary logo. It will open in a new window or tab on your browser; right click and choose “Save image” to save the logo onto your computer.
This can be used in place of our usual diocesan logo throughout this year, not just for advertising 130th anniversary events.
The Intercession calendar, which was printed in the Winter edition of Focus is also available to download from our prayer resources page.
Do you visit churches outside of our diocese, maybe when you are on holiday? Why not leave one of these postcards next time?
We also have a different set of cards to leave in churches within the diocese.
They have been produced specifically to be given outside of Oxford diocese; there will be separate ones for within our diocese issued shortly.
The file below has four cards, and is designed to be printed double sided (“flip on short edge) on card.
We have a new prayer resource created by our Faith and Policy Unit. It is called “Praying Through The Year” and can be found in the “Praying” section of this website, or by clicking the link below…
Our theme for 2018 is “In Mary Sumner’s footsteps”. The resources for 2018 will focus on the example of our founder, and on the core principles of Mothers’ Union; listening to God and each other, having determination to take steps of faith as we journey together in response to His call.
Resources on the theme can be found on the central Mothers’ Union website.
