Mothers Union

At St Michael’s we have an active Mothers’ Union branch with a varied and interesting programme. We meet once a month.

Any baptised person can join the MU and we welcome visitors of all ages, male and female to our meetings. The programme is published in the church magazine and further information can be obtained from the Branch Leader and Secretay, Joan Thompson 01436 423451 .
