Thy Kingdom Come Global Moment 2020

We are delighted to be returning to Coventry Cathedral for the third year running to join together for our Thy Kingdom Come Global Moment. This will be at 2:00pm on Friday 22nd May 2020.
This will be the first opportunity for many to meet our Mothers' Union Central Chaplain, Bishop Emma, who will be bringing the Word in the service. We are also very pleased to welcome Reverend Barry Hill who spoke at our 2019 General Meeting.
On the day, there will be a Mothers' Union marketplace with a range of stalls and displays. Coventry Diocese' refugee friends from Syria and Iraq will be providing refreshments. For those coming with children, there will be craft activities for them, (and any interested adults!) before and during the service.
All members, supporters and friends of Mothers' Union are welcome to our service for all ages, with a global feel to reflect our 4 million members worldwide.
For those unable to join us the service will be livestreamed on Facebook.
There is no charge for the service but please let us know if you are planning to attend to help with catering - there will be refreshments available before and after the service. 

Currently this event is still planned to go ahead.

If you have not yet booked your travel for this event then we advise you to wait until we issue a further update. If you are keen to book your travel at this time then we advise you to book the cheapest flexible/cancellable travel you can. If you have already booked your travel you should not do anything at the moment.

We will continue to monitor the current situation and will update this advice again on or before 1st April 2020
