Christian care for families worldwide ~ MU Middle Rasen (LN8 3JU)
MIDDLE RASEN MOTHER'S UNION
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday in the month. In the Church Hall at 7.30pm.
Branch Leader Mrs Elaine Jennings
The group in Middle Rasen is led by Elaine Jennings who lives at Fruitwood House, Gainsborough Road (near the new crossing). They meet at 7.30pm on the first Wednesday of every month at Middle Parish Church Hall and have a mixture of speakers and social events.
However there is more to Mothers Union than its Wednesday meetings. Members also try to support families in many practical ways. For many years they have helped to staff the crèche at Lincoln Prison and collect practical resources like food parcels, toiletries and children's toys for the Women's Refuge in Lincoln . They encourage families with newly baptised children, sending cards, and help with refreshments in the church hall after the Pram Service that meets at Middle Rasen Parish Church on the first & third Mondays at 2.15pm. You may have called in for a coffee at St Benedict's, the Mothers Union centre on the high street in Lincoln city centre (the church near M&S) which branch members staff on a rota basis three times a year.
Membership of Mothers Union costs £14 a year, but, being a Christian group, members must have been baptised. However, anyone is welcome to attend a monthly meeting to see if they want to become involved. For more information contact Elaine Jennings at firstname.lastname@example.org (842269).

SLIDE SHOW WITH A DIFFERENCE
Middle Rasen Mother's Union had a very informative and enjoyable evening when Geoff and Anne Walker came to tell us about Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance. Geoff set up the screen and slide projector and when he switched the projector on the bulb failed so unfortunately the slides couldn't be shown. Not to be discouraged Anne decided that if we all looked at the screen she would describe each slide so that we could imagine what the pictures looked like. Added to this, a bit of acting on Anne's part and a bit of good natured interfering on Geoff's part we were all set for a very interesting and hilarious evening. Joking apart we learnt a lot about the Air Ambulance, a charity which receives no funding from the government, having to rely entirely on charitable donations through endless fund raising events and activities and donations from very generous members of the public. It costs 1.7 million a year to keep the service going and on behalf of everyone involved at the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance thanks were given to everyone for their continued support.
MOTHER'S UNION PLAN AN EXCITING YEAR AHEAD
Mother's Union members are looking forward to another year after having enjoyed a full and varied programme last year. The 2011 Highlights included visits from Tasmin and Glennie two lovely Guide Dogs for The Blind, Joy Liddle from Lincoln Street Pastors, The Rev Ian Robinson, Craft evenings, Summer Garden Party and the annual lunch at Market Rasen Golf Club and much more. We also welcomed and enrolled our latest member Janet Davis. 2012 started with the AGM followed by supper at Elaine's home and is set to be another full and interesting year, with a pampering evening with Carol from Indulgence in Market Rasen, in March, ‘Cooking With Apples' in October and many other interesting speakers throughout the year. There are also plans for a summer party and the annual lunch as usual. The main aim of the Mother's Union is Christian care for families which we support in many ways here and overseas. Our main project is helping to support The Woman's Refuge in Lincoln. We also help with the serving of refreshments at St Bennedict's Church, Lincoln. Anyone interested in joining us will find our full programme and details booklets etc on our notice board in the Church Hall. We meet at 7.30 on the first Wednesday of the month in the Church Hall Middle Rasen. New members are very welcome and we usually have a little raffle at refreshment time. If you would like any other information please contact Elaine on 842269.
