Frodsham Deanery Mothers' Union

2016 Events

The ladies of Frodsham enjoyed a cake session in the Parish Hall on 13 July! MU cake toppers and a variety of coloured icing added to the fun. A bit of relaxation before the serious business of a coffee morning the following day - which raised £192 for MU funds. Our gentleman member, Ted, was up for the challenge, and it was a real joy to see the laughter on Sylvia's face (in the flowered dress sitting at the same table) - she hasn't been very well and hadn't been able to come for quite a while.
 

 


Frodsham Deanery's Lady Day and Commissioning of Officers Service held on Monday 4th April 2016 at St Peter's church, Aston-by-Sutton.
 
Bishop Libby Lane led the Lady Day Service and preached. Her sermon was profound and thought-provoking in exploring how, after Gabriel's visit, Mary's strength in confidence of mind and spirit flourished, and Bishop Libby encouraged all of us present to ask questions of God to help us see the path He wants us to follow. Bishop Libby also commissioned three new Officers; Pat Brian (Frodsham Deanery Leader), Gillian Gilbert (Assistant Leader), and Ann Goacher (Branch Leader, St Peter's Aston-by-Sutton).

Celebrating 100 years of Mothers' Union in Frodsham Saturday 15 June 2013 at 2.00 pm in Church
St Laurence, Frodsham branch celebrated its centenary on June 15th 2013 by holding a Thanksgiving Service and Strawberry Tea in church. The service included the story of how the branch began 100 years ago. The two celebration cakes (1913 and 2013) were cut by Eveline Britland, the longest serving member of the branch who was able to attend the service, and the youngest of our current members, Joanna Ayliffe. To mark the occasion Marian Gerrard worked a table runner in Mothers' Union colours and with the Mothers' Union logo as a centrepiece. We are thrilled to have this as part of our heritage to treasure and pass on for the future.
