Bourne Abbey Church
Over the Patronal Festival weekend (June 25 and 26) Bourne Abbey marked the 140th anniversary of founding of the Mothers' Union with a Let's Celebrate event.
Colourful Mothers' Union banners from the Beltisloe Deanery, plus some from other parts of the Lincoln Diocese, were on display around the Abbey Church. There will also be displays of the work of the Mothers' Union in Bourne, the Diocese and indeed worldwide. And, of course, beautiful floral arrangements.
On both days the Mothers' Union Prayer Wave was marked at midday when Mothers' Union members prayed for Mothers' Union members world-wide.
Ann Northen, secretary of the Social Committee said: "Many thanks to all who contribute to the displays in Church of the banners and work
of the Mothers’ Union here in Bourne and Worldwide. Also to the ladies who manned stalls and served refreshments during the weekend. "Once again the three Primary Academies. decorated the walls with wonderful murals depicting Mothers and Bible stories with children."
