The Manchester Diocese Mothers’ Union Advent Service was held on Monday 04 December 2023 at St. Ann’s Church, St. Ann’s Square, Manchester. We were welcomed by our President Christine Sharp, with the service led by The Venerable Mike McGurk. Members from across the diocese came along to join in worship and fellowship and welcomed the enrolment of a new Mothers’ Union member. The service was followed by coffee and homemade mince pies, which were rather tasty! Following this lovely gathering some went on to visit the Christmas markets and enjoy the festive atmosphere in Manchester, others went to do some Christmas shopping…

Members of St Anne’s Mothers’ Union attended their annual Christmas party at Greenmount Golf Club. The occasion started with grace said by Bridget followed by a beautiful buffet. Sadly, Tottington Brass Band were unable to join us at tonight’s social however ‘never fear’ we entertained ourselves singing a handful of traditional carols. Well done ladies, some cracking voices!! A raffle was drawn with lots of tempting prizes and donations were made to a local charity. Thank you all for your support, very much appreciated.
Season’s Greetings to all; wishing you peace and joy this festive season and a New Year filled with love and happiness…

The evening was spent creating beautiful Christmas table decorations in jam jars facilitated by Pat Blake and Margaret Garlick whilst we all enjoyed a glass of sherry and a mince pie to celebrate the coming festive period. Thank you to Pat and Margaret for all their support in helping us make beautiful table decorations, providing greenery together with festive arts and crafts- another successful creative evening with lots of fun had by all!
