Mother's Union

Meets in the Archdale Hall on the 1st Thursday of the month at 8.00pm.

Mothers' Union, founded over 100 years ago, is a worldwide Anglican organisation of which we can all be proud. The work and witness of its members, showing Christian Care for Families, is a vital part of the Church's mission and is always expressed in the context of the local church.

Magheracross MU has gone from strength to strength since its formation and seeks to face the challenges to family life posed by changing values in society. Monthly meetings are times of enjoyment and fellowship with opportunities to be inspired and encouraged by a range of speakers.

Far from being a self-serving organisation, Magheracross MU plays an active part in service and outreach through catering at funeral teas and hospitality at the Learning Disabled Carol Service. They visit and bring gifts to housebound parishioners and do follow-up visits to the families of the newly-baptized. They serve tea and juice at PreSchool Praise and get to know younger mothers and their children.

Girls Friendly Society

Meets during term time on a Tuesday evening at 6.30pm in the Archdale hall.
