of varying activities throughout the Diocese.
The project work undertaken in the parishes, deaneries, diocese and
overseas, are organised through the Action & Outreach Unit. The

Wave of Prayer - for your daily devotions
Mothers' Union members in various deaneries have local projects to
meet specific needs in their community. Many branches support the
Refuges in Lincoln, Grimsby, Gainsborough, Boston, Grantham and
Scunthorpe. They collect toiletry items for women to have when they
arrive at the Refuge,
and household items for when they leave to set up a new home. The
make specific appeals from time to time, for items such as baby toiletries,
tinned foods, toys, suitcases, etc. To help with this project please
contact your own deanery leader.
Other local projects include knitting clothing for premature babies,
running drop-in centres and lunch clubs, sending baptism anniversary
cards, and making toy bags for toddlers in church. Locally members are now making up story bags for use in their pre-schools,
primary schools, Sunday schools and libraries.
Can you think of local needs not
being met? Speak to your cluster leader,
or the diocesan Action and Outreach Co-ordinator.
We also have an excellent resource called "The Good Practice
Guide for Parent & Toddler Groups," and also "Relationships
Matter," a pack to facilitate discussion about relationships
on all sorts of levels. Mothers' Union have another pack called "Living
Positively" to aid discussion about HIV/AIDS, but it is aimed
primarily for use overseas. Contact Office
