September 2nd was Mothers’ Union Sunday in Sheffield Diocese. In the afternoon many Deaneries are held a Sponsored Walk to raise awareness of Mothers’ Union.
Attercliffe Deanery walked around Rother Valley Country Park, they were joined by some members from St James Woodhouse Ramblers and a 5 year old, who is now an ‘Honorary MU Member’!
Doncaster, Snaith & Hatfield Deaneries walked around the Lake on Sunday afternoon after members celebrated MU Sunday in their own churches in the morning. Mary Bates is our very new member, being enrolled at St Jude’s, Hexthorpe this morning. Welcome Mary! After the walk drinks and fellowship were on hand at Cafe Theo, St Francis church, kindly provided by St Francis MU. Well done everyone and in excess of £300 was raised for MU projects.”

Ecclesall Deanery met for a walk around Millhouses Park.

Wath Deanery were joined by some members of Rotherham & Laughton Deanery and met at Wentworth Church in glorious sunshine ready to walk to Harley church. We were very grateful for the wonderful refreshments at Harley. One of our members even had the energy to play.The return walk was warm but everyone was still smiling. Flyers and information about Mothers Union was given out to people that we met. There was also some money collected by sponsorship. A good afternoon enjoyed by all.
