General Meeting 2017

On the 30th September 2017, we were thrilled to welcome around 900 hundred of our members to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) to come together for a day of worship, celebration and learning at our General Meeting. With a theme of "Peace and Reconciliation" we were delighted to welcome Sarah Snyder, the Archbishop of Canterbury's Advisor on Reconciliation as our Keynote Speaker. Sarah encouraged Mothers' Union to "move outside of its comfort zone and build on its strength" in order for us to best reach our communities with our work. Mothers' Union Worldwide President, Lynne Tembey and our Chief Executive, Bev Jullien both presented to members about the impact of our work throughout the world and we were very blessed to be led in worship by both The Bishop of Edinburgh, and our Central Chaplain, Bishop Andrew Proud.
