At All Saints’ we have a strong and vibrant MU Branch with 51 members which is run by a committee. Our meetings and activities are open to all, members and non-members. You will receive a warm welcome.
We hold regular afternoon and evening meetings in the Church Institute. These meetings are interesting and varied and we often welcome guest speakers. We also organise an annual outing. In 2017 our November meeting was attended by the MU Worldwide President, Lynne Tembey, who talked about the Mothers’ Union activities in many countries and visited Teddies’ 10 Minutes.
We have much to give us a good basis for our spiritual learning, Bible Study courses, Lent and Advent Services and the preparation of the Garden of Gethsemane on Maundy Thursday. Corporate Communion is attended monthly.
As part of Parish events, the MU takes part in Village Day and helps at the May Fair. We assemble toiletry bags for those being admitted in an emergency to Epsom Hospital, donate items for the Women’s refuges and have collected clothes and make knitted items for child refugees and others. We regularly hold fund raising events to support MU projects.
In the Diocese, we attend the Lady Day Service and Pilgrimage of Prayer at the Cathedral, and the Diocesan Members’ Meeting, now held at St George’s Christian Centre, Ashtead. Within the Deanery of Epsom we visit other branches for meetings, including the Deanery Quiet Day and share in the Deanery Summer Lunch.
The MU hosts the Marriage Preparation Course for couples marrying at All Saints’. It also helps with Teddies Ten Minutes, Big Teds, Holiday Fun Week, providing funeral teas, flowers in Church and supporting bereaved people.
