We have had an exciting few days as Lynne Tembey, the Worldwide President of the Mothers’ Union has visited the Diocese, arriving on the Wednesday evening of the 9th September and left late afternoon on Saturday 12th September. In that time, Lynne met Indoor and Diocesan members who attended a service in the Lady Chapel here in All Saints’ Church, which was followed by a “Drop-In” afternoon with lots of tea and cake for members to pop in and say hello. The Trustees enjoyed a buffet supper with Lynne on the Thursday evening.
Lynne also visited a Women’s Refuge followed by the Daylight Centre. Lunch was enjoyed at West Haddon where she met members of the newest MU branch – Ridgeway. Then it was across to the Brackley Deanery to meet many members there for Afternoon Tea.
Lynne’s visit ended on Saturday afternoon with a service in Peterborough Cathedral with many members from across the Diocese attending. It was wonderful to see so many MU Branch Banners! We were delighted that Bishop John was able to be with us too.
