York Province Thanksgiving Service for the Triennium 2007-2009


Several members from the Diocese travelled to Sheffield on 10th December 2009 to join others from across York Province at a thanksgiving Eucharist Service. The president for the Eucharist was the Rt. Revd. David Hawtin, Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Sheffield and the address was given by Vivien Kityo, a Central Trustee from Uganda.
Vivien brought us greetings from Uganda and thanked us for our prayers and financial support for the Family Life Programme. She said it was wonderful to come to England to say thank you to God, rather than coming as a Trustee to a meeting. She reminded us that the Bible tells us to give thanks to God at all times and said that in Africa, we know how to thank God and we do not take things for granted.
She said that Mothers' Union is a gift from God to the church and that God gives us the ability and capability to do our work.
