"Christian care for families" sums up the aims of the Mothers' Union. We interpret this broadly. Most of our activities support the local community, including patients in Chase Farm Hospital, and we also meet for talks, socials, and special services.
We run a singing group for the local community in the Clay Hill area of Enfield. We have a trained choir leader, Claire Stogden, and sing a variety of music. It doesn't matter whether you think you can sing, the emphasis is on enjoyment and the health benefits. The group meets on most Fridays in term time from 10.30am until 12 noon in St Luke's Church. The Spring Term ends on 24 March. The Summer Term starts on 21 April and ends on 21 July. We shall not meet on 26 May or 2 June (half term). There is no charge, but most members do make a small donation.
Our branch provides bags of toiletries for unplanned admissions to Chase Farm Hospital.
One of our members goes to Great Ormond Street Hospital regularly to provide coffee, cake and chat for the parents of sick children.
We run a knitting circle in a local retirement home.
