Away from it All: Holidays for Families in Special Need

In case you haven’t joined us yet, here’s an indication of what you’re missing!

Promoting and supporting family life since 1876

Tiverton Mothers’ Union members endeavours to maintain this in various ways:

  • By meeting regularly, praying together, caring for each other and entertaining speakers on subjects related to this aim
  • By raising necessary funds for our overseas members to enable them to improve family life and health
  • By raising funds for families in Devon who are in need of short caravan holidays Away From It All (AFIA)
  • By supporting a scheme to enable prisoners due for release to rebuild relationships with their children (The Big Book Share)
  • By knitting and sewing items for premature and new born babies, those with dementia and overseas orphanges
  • By joining a worldwide wave of prayer to pray and support members in our link dioceses in Africa, the Caribbean and South Africa
  • By enjoying one another’s company and having fun!

We meet on the Second Wednesday of each month at 2pm in the Baptist Church Rooms. All are welcome.

Lord of all,
unite us in our shared vision
 of a world where God’s love is shown
 through loving, respectful,
 and flourishing relationships. AMEN.

Altar frontal for the Solomon Islands

 

Following a special request via Jenny Palmer, a beautiful, crocheted altar frontal was made by Sheila Richardson for the Church on Rendova in the Solomon Islands. This request was received after a lovely MU banner that we made for another of the islands a little while ago.

The blankets, hats and gloves were for Nepalese Orphanages.

All were blessed by the Rev Robert Gordon before being sent overseas with our love.
