Wednesday 10 July Prescot Mothers’ Union was 90 years old! When Canon Lovatt’s wife, Evelyn, started the Mothers’ Union 90 years ago in the Vicarage I bet she never imagined how big an organisation it would become with over 4 million members across 83 countries across the world.

Our celebrations began on Saturday 13th with a service of Thanksgiving and Sung Eucharist. During this service five new members were enrolled by Revd Jeff Engel, Chaplain Emeritus: Ann Capewell, Isa Boadey, Eric Orme, Revd John Taylor and Rev Kim Mannings.

We welcomed Caroline Collins, our Diocesan President, along with many members from St Ann’s Rainhill, Holy Spirit Dovecot and St Helens Parish Church. Following the uplifting service, afternoon tea was served in the Meeting Room and enjoyed by all.

‘Heavenly Father we give heartfelt thanks for 90 years of service to the Mothers’ Union in Prescot. We thank you for the vision of                              Mary Sumner who gathered women together to be a wave of prayer to take the love of Christ into their homes and families. Help us to spread your word through love and prayer into every family home, strengthen and bless all our members around the world as we carry out your mission. This we pray in the name of Jesus. Amen’

Halfway through the year where does the time go?

   As I write we have just had a really entertaining and enjoyable evening, our guest speaker was Kath Darragh and she spoke about her life when she was a Tiller Girl!

   As Pentecost approaches, we and her whole church family support Kim as she is ordained priest on 8 June at Liverpool Cathedral and celebrates her first Eucharist on 9 June at St Mary’s. We send our love and prayers to Kim and her husband Steve at this very special time in their lives.

   On Wednesday 12 June we are off to Chester to the Mill House Hotel for lunch on their barge which is moored at the canal adjacent to the hotel. Following a lovely lunch, we move on to the Grosvenor Garden Centre to complete our day out.

   Next month we look forward to celebrating our 90th birthday with a service of Thanksgiving followed by an afternoon tea on Saturday 13 July. We hope all our members, and indoor members, will be able to join us on this very special occasion.

   Ending on the theme of Pentecost I leave you with the following prayer:

Dear Risen Lord please send your mighty fire to rage within our minds and in our hearts and fill us with unquenchable desire to summon all our will and strength to do your work on earth. Amen.

Mothers’ Union

Alleluia Christ is Risen. He is Risen Indeed. Alleluia!

The tomb is empty, Christ has risen gloriously from the dead.

Today love and resurrection have made us whole.

   For some Mothers’ Union members, and many other volunteers from within the church family, Easter came early in the taking part of Experience Easter. This was when our church welcomed 600 children over 3 days to understand and explore what happened to Jesus during Holy Week and then went on to discuss their hopes and fears in the 21st century.

   It was an amazing event and a privilege to have taken part, helping us to be better prepared for our Holy Week and the wonderful festival that is Easter.

   Happy Easter to all our readers.

Mothers’ Union

M.U. Programme 2019

January 23rd was the start of our 2019 programme with the Rev Kim Mannings being our speaker and what a wonderful evening we had listening to Kim telling us of her spiritual journey how she came to faith, and the people who helped and guided her along the way to ordination. It was a very cold and icy evening but for those of us who made it we were not disappointed.

   On a trial basis for this year we are holding our meetings monthly which will be the fourth Wednesday of the month.

   As we look ahead to Spring here is a prayer from an M.U. publication:

Creator God, in the beauty of Spring we witness again and again your creative hand at work. As the earth reawakens after the dark days of winter, help us to be renewed in our passion for you. As the first crocus breaks through the winter hardened earth, so your Son broke through the darkness of this world to bring us light and hope. As we bathe in the warmth of the early Spring sunshine, may we feel the warmth of your love and radiate it to others.

   In your name we pray.   Amen
