Colwall Mothers' Union
Meetings are held in the Ale House by St James' Church from April to October and from November to March in St Crispin's Chapel at the Village Hall.
Mary Sumner who founded the Mothers' Union in 1896 lived as a girl in Colwall. She was married here in St James Church in 1848 - a connection of which we feel rather proud. We are very pleased that Mothers' Union members from around the region like to visit us here and hear about her life – and we can, and do, arrange teas for our visitors which helps us raise funds for MU.
Our branch in Colwall has about 50 members of whom about half come to our meetings. We meet once a month to share time together, enjoy each others company and to hear speakers on a wide range of topics. All our members however are very supportive of our aims and help with fundraising, playing an active role in many parish activities such as Mothering Sunday and Christingle Services and organising one of the Lent Lunches. We also join with members in the deanery and diocese from time to time.
Our meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month at 2.15pm.
The subject and location of each meeting is advertised in the parish magazine The Clock and visitors are always welcome.
