Our local group has enjoyed talks from various MU speakers, such as updates of members work in the Detainee Centre’s at Gatwick airport and Away From It All Caravan Projects, demonstration and work of the Prayer Shawl Ministry and meditational meetings focusing on prayer.  

 

We come together during the year for fellowship and sociable activities, enjoying meal celebrations and outings of various forms.
