Meeting Reports:

February meeting: A Talk by Petra Yates - our Ordinand.

We were delighted to welcome Petra Yates to our February meeting to talk to us about the faith tours which were developed by faith leaders: Christians, Muslims, Sikhs and others, for schools and other organisations, and are administered by Faith in Queens Park, a registered charity. The tours provide an opportunity for schools to bring RE alive through first-hand experience, to enhance the spiritual, moral and cultural developments of pupils, and experience community cohesion at work in a diverse neighbourhood. Petra spoke enthusiastically about her interaction with the children she had taken on the tours. January Meeting: Enrolment and Discussion. Our first meeting of the New Year began with the enrolment of two new members: Revd Nick Munday and his wife Liz Munday. We continued with the Membership Service and Mothers' Union Prayer. This was followed with discussions to decide on events and/or speakers for the following six/twelve months. A vote of thanks was given to Jackie and Hazel for all their hard work in organising our meeting during last year. Members were asked to bring any odd balls of two or three ply wool to knit premature baby clothes for Bedford Hospital. The meeting concluded with a welcome cup of tea and cakes. December Christmas Gathering. Our Christmas meeting was enjoyed by a number of members with a few visitors. We welcomed two new members into our branch who were enrolled by Revd Paolo. A few of our favourite carols were sung lustily, accompanied by Paolo on guitar and Colin Scott on the accordion. Grateful thanks to the members for supplying the tempting and delicious bring-and-share refreshments. January Meeting Our meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month. Our first meeting in the New Year is on 13th January 2022, when we will discuss ideas for the year ahead. It is important that all should attend if possible, so we can work together to plan our diary for the forthcoming year.  In January we have the pleasure of enrolling another two members. Let us continue to follow in the footsteps of Mary Sumner and shine our light throughout the world in honour of the joyful work she set before us of making a huge difference to family life. We look forward to a future of hope, love and joy, regardless of what changes may be brought before us.
