Our branch has 30 Members and we meet throughout the year; usually at St. John’s Church in Priory Street. (Please see what's on for further details.)
We have a Service on the 1st Tuesday of the Month (apart from January & August). On the 3rd Tuesday (apart from August) we have a varied programme including welcoming a wide range of speakers both from within our Parish and beyond. We take part in the MU “Wave of Prayer”; The Women’s World Day of Prayer; have an Annual Dinner; a Fish and Chips lunch and numerous Special Events. We attend Diocesan, Archidiaconal and Deanery Events.
Many of our members and their friends are keen knitters. We knit balaclavas & scarves for the Mission to Seafarers and collect warm clothing for them. We knit teddies for sick and distressed children in our local hospitals and, also, bonnets, blankets and clothes for babies. We make “Cross in my Pocket”s for Clergy and Hospital Chaplains to distribute to the sick or those in distress. We contribute towards AFIA (a MU fund which provides holidays for local families in need), The MU Overseas Fund, The UK and Ireland Development Fund etc.
We liaise regularly with other Branches in our Deanery and join together for Quiet Afternoons/Evenings, special Services and fund raising activities.
MU members are involved in practically all aspects of Church life from Bell Ringing, Music Making and Safeguarding to serving on the Parocial Church Council. One of our Members goes into a local primary school with the “God for Kids” project; another assists with “Messy Church” in Abergwili and we support our Carer and Toddler Group and “Plant Dewi”. As tradition would have it, we also make a brilliant cup of tea!!
Membership of the MU is open to ALL regardless of gender, age or marital status.
