In October 2017 I visited my family in Barbados and was able to join the Mothers’ Union for a meeting.
The Mothers’ Union branch was the Holy Trinity, St Philips, Barbados. They meet on the second Saturday in the month, in the afternoon. They start with worship, using the MU blue and red prayer books along with readings from the Bible. Afterwards a short committee meeting took place, which involved all branch members. They too had projects and also dealt with individuals. While the quiz Q and A from the Bible was in progress, the preparation for the birthday party was taking place.
I was asked to give an overview of my branch meetings and I left details of the Cross in Pocket, which is our latest project. I was given an open invitation to their meetings whenever I am on the island again. We ended with prayers and grace.
