The United Benefice of Sharnbrook, Felmersham and Knotting with Souldrop
Meeting Reports: January Meeting - The Way Foreward At our   January meeting we discussed the changes to the Mothers' Union in the Diocese of St Albans. Instead of deaneries and archdeaconries we will be split into five cluster groups, North, South, East, West and Central. The deaneries of Bedford, Biggleswade and Sharnbrook will be amalgamated to become the Northern Cluster and our Cluster Chaplain will be Revd. James Revely of St. Andrew’s Church, Bedford. Our annual contribution for charity has been forwarded to head office to be used for the Britain & Ireland Development fund which supports the full range of Mus charitable activities in Britain and Ireland. As speakers had already been arranged for the first half of the year, members discussed possible speakers for the second half of 2020. There was no shortage of ideas but it was also decided that, in future, should any of the speakers not be able to come at the last minute, we would just have an informal meeting with members bringing favorite poems or CD’s to play. We also discussed the possibility of having an outing during the summer, with the venue to be decided later. December Meeting: Christmas Party Our party this year was well attended and we were pleased to welcome special guests, Rev. James Reverly, Vicar of St Andrew's Church Bedford and Chaplain of the Mother’s Union, and two of his parishioners, Edna and John Stringer. We were also joined by Father Mac, Rev. Lionel Albon and some of the members' husbands. Our favorite carols were sung with enthusiasm and accompanied by the Rev. Paolo on guitar and Colin Scott on the accordion. A lively afternoon ended with a delicious tea of sandwiches, cakes, mince pies and an assortment of other goodies supplied by the members.
