ON PRAISE TODAY - 11 AUGUST 2019

Grandmother and Vicar’s wife Mary Sumner founded the Mothers Union over 140 years ago with the aim of creating supportive groups to help young mothers as they raised their children in happy stable relationships. Today there are over 4 million members world-wide,  and on 9th August each year they gather at local services to celebrate the life and legacy of their Founder.  Mothers Union members held their Founders Day Service on Friday evening in Kirk Andreas, and guest preacher Rev’d Canon Janice Ward shared her thoughts on the joys and challenges of being a Minister and a Mother.

Find out more about the Mothers’ Union at www.mothersunion.org

Meet Ali and Jon Taylor! (See today's blog photo) They’re leaving their jobs at Scripture Union, and leaving the Isle of Man, with no plans and no jobs - just a desire to serve God in whatever way He calls them.  On PRAISE today they explain their decision - and share their passion for the SU Port St Mary Beach Mission
