The Mothers’ Union is a worldwide Anglican organisation with branches in 83 countries. It works in practical ways to help families including offering a literacy programme and a parenting skills programme.
At All Saints’ our Mothers’ Union group meets once a month on the 1st Monday of the month at 2pm. We usually start with a short service and activities vary; we invite speakers on a range of subjects, we fundraise for the international work of the MU responding to emergencies and local needs, and we sometimes have entertainments. Members of the MU are involved in organising Soup and a Smile, which runs on Thursday lunchtimes at All Saints’.

All Saints’ Brownies
Brownies caters for girls between the ages of 7 and 10, although they can stay until their eleventh Birthday if they are not ready to progress.
At Brownies the girls will learn lots of different skills that will prepare them for adult life. The girls are encouraged to think for themselves and be involved in planning their meetings and in decision making.
Our activities include: cooking, art work, craft, games, singing and music, caring for the environment, raising money for charity and keeping fit.
Brownies learn and say a promise that they will love their God, serve the Queen and country and help other people. They must also commit themselves to keeping the Brownie Guide Law which is to do a good turn every day. They are also expected to attend church parades on approximately 5 occasions throughout the year.
Our meeting take place every Thursday during term time from 4.45 pm until 6.30 pm. Subscriptions are paid termly. If you would like to pop along to have a look for yourselves please do so. We are always looking to recruit new girls and potential leaders. You will find us very friendly and approachable.
