MOTHERS’ UNION NOTES

There was no local meeting of the Mothers’ Union in March, instead some members attended part of  Bishop Paul’s Lent course held in Retford at St Swithun’s  Church.   It took place over two nights.   The subjects were Grace and Forgiveness.  It was also attended by some theological students.  Members found it interesting and enlightening.
At the next meeting on the 9th April members will be attending the Lady Day Service in Southwell Minster, beginning at 2pm.
