The Mothers Union meetings will commence on Monday 26th September 2022 at 7.30 pm in the Minor Hall. The first meeting will be a get together for tea and chat. It is proposed to discuss topics for further meetings in the period September to December 2022 and also timings for Meetings. It is hoped that all members will be able to attend this meeting and we would welcome anyone who would like to join us. We are so glad that we are able to now meet in person but are only planning for the short term now.
I would like to thank all parishioners for their contributions to the Food Bank which are being gratefully received. It is particularly important that contributions continue as we enter the autumn period when the cold weather commences and food is essential to maintain body heat. I would like to thank Dorothy our Treasurer who delivers donated items to the Food Bank each week. Continuity is vital to help all in need.
I would also like to thank Eileen our Secretary who is acting as Church Warden during this quarter and advise you that she will answer any questions that you may have about our organisation .

At the request of the Rector and Select Vestry, the Mothers Union have taken on the task of organizing a collection of food items for the Lisburn foodbank, where families can access help at a time when the cost of living is rising sharply.

If any parishioner wishes to donate items to the Lisburn Food Bank, these should consist of non -perishable food items, which are in date.  There is also a need for cleaning items and personal hygiene items.  They can be left at the back of the Church each Sunday.  From June of this year, Lambeg & Hilden have donated over 700 items to the foodbank.  Many thanks for your continued generosity.
