 23rd September - General Meeting, Hampshire Court Hotel, Basingstoke

Mothers Union’s General Meeting was a really wonderful opportunity to find out more about the work we do, our vision for the future and is above all, a time of fellowship with members from around the world. We were especially thrilled that our worship was enhanced by our sisters from Zambia.  The meeting celebrated the 140th anniversary of Mothers’ Union with highlights being The Saltmine Theatre Company performing a dramatisation of Mary Sumner's vision for Mothers' Union and the cutting of a beautiful 140th cake!
