Supporting students

                                             

 

Mothers' Union in Manchester continues to support students at the Universities and RNCM in Manchester at St. Peter's Chaplaincy, Oxford Road.

 

             

Finishing in 2016, we have had a very successful nine or ten years fo welcoming new students with over 2000 special goody bags and serving soup on Wednesday lunchtimes.

 

We continue to support the Chaplaincy, as well as providing Cross in My Pockets for the Chaplains.

The new "Milk and Honey" cafe area at the Chaplaincy will provide a friendly buzz in a lovely bright space in the heart of the Universities, with an aim to bring people together whose paths would not normally cross.

 

Volunteers are needed to serve, to welcome and to make "Milk and Honey" a wonderful place for encounter and community.  The Chaplaincy believe in the value of intergenerational work and students say how much they enjoy spending time with people who are nto the same age as them.

 

The Chaplaincy are looking to grow their garden team, and eventually to work with local communities to offer the St Peter's Gardens as a space that serves all its neighbours.  They are also working on plans to develop a Peace Garden, starting with a stone Labyrinth for mindful time-out from University life.

 

Interested in volunteering to help or work a shift at "Milk and Honey" alongside a range of people, including students?
