The Mothers' Union is part of the Anglican Church and is truly international. It has many aims, the foremost being, to promote Christian Family life. The Swaffham branch has 24 members, and usually meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month, at 10.00 am. Please see our programme opposite for full details.
The programme of meetings, which normally includes a speaker, is also published on the church noticeboard. Visitors are always welcome.

THE MARY SUMNER PRAYER
All this day, O Lord,
let me touch as many lives as
possible for Thee;
and every life I touch, do Thou by
Thy spirit quicken,
whether through the word I speak,
the prayer I breathe,
or the life I live.
Written in 1876 by the Mothers’ Union founder Mrs Mary Sumner.
