Postcards for sending inside or outside Oxford Diocese

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.

Mothers’ Union theme for 2018 – “In Mary Sumner’s footsteps”

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.

Twiddle Muffs

Try knitting something different – and useful! Making Twiddle Muffs are a great way to help people with dementia exercise their fingers. Have a go in your branches using this pattern from MU Chester Diocese. You can even ask your local “Knit and Natter” group to make them as a community project. Finished items are welcomed at Care Homes for residents with dementia, anxiety or recovering from strokes. Please remember to add a Mothers’ Union gift label to each item

 

Publicity Leaflet

Here is our new publicity leaflet that you can print out and fold into three sections and distribute as widely as you would like. It is a helpful and comprehensive summary of what we do in the diocese.
