Mothers Union Re-Launch

On 20th May 2012 St. Matthew's, Leyburn, welcomed a packed church to relaunch the Leyburn and Bellerby branch of the Mothers' Union. The branch had earlier put together a dynamic statement of intent (shown below) as members recognised the need to reach out into the wider community. The branch has been considering how it might urge politicians from all parties to consider ways in which to support stable family life and the upbringing of children; engage actively with groups associated with promoting the well-being of family life, help to run events that will promote its Christian understanding of family life and assist the parish churches in their outreach to families. If these are values that you too hold dear, please contact the Branch Leader, Carol Leaman, Membership is open to both men and women.

Statement of Intent
Our aim is to reveal the transforming love of Christ within the communities of Leyburn and Bellerby.  Through our fellowship, worship, informed prayer, and discussion, we seek to provide pastoral support, (especially in relation to baptisms, weddings and funerals,) and to raise awareness and campaign on issues of social justice.
