ST MARY'S CHURCH FLOWERS

St Mary's Church flower arranging team is happy to welcome anyone, experienced or beginner, to join the regular church flower arranging team. For more information contact Nadia Florence-Marshall HERE.

FRIENDS OF ST MARY'S

St Mary's Church dates back to Saxon times. By the 19th century it was in a very poor state, dependant on a small parish of about 300 people and the generosity of individuals. 

The Friends of St Mary's was formed in 1985, concerned mainly with raising funds for the upkeep of the fabric of the church. Over the years we have contributed to repairs and improvements in the church and are extremely grateful to those who have enabled us to do so. 

We welcome anyone who would like to become a Friend and join in with all that this small but vibrant community offers. A yearly subscription of £5 entitles you to vote at the AGM. For more information contact the  Liz Dean HERE

PARISH COUNCIL

Udimore Parish Council represents local residents and works with the East Sussex County Council and Rother District Council to deliver services to meet local needs and to improve the quality of life in the Parish. Udimore Parish Council is completely separate from the local Parochial Church Council (PCC) which is part of the Church of England and is responsible for St Mary's Church. For more information HERE.

THE 4 CHARITIES GROUP

We are a local group which was set up as the overseas outreach for St. George's Brede and St. Mary's Udimore over 20 years ago.  During the last few years the group has raised over £28,000 all of which has been distributed to the charities the group support.

 

This achievement reflects the wonderful support we have received from local and nearby communities who have come to the various events. 

 

The charities the group support are:

 

More information about each charity can be found on the 4CHARITIES website  -  www.4charities.net

MOTHER'S UNION
57.jpg

In over 80 countries of the world, more than 4 million Mothers' Union members do all they can - through volunteering, giving and prayer - to support families, to promote marriage and family life, and to reach out within their communities to people who are isolated, in trouble or in need of help.

 

Building, strengthening, supporting, encouraging and healing relationships lie at the very heart of Mothers' Union.

 

We're not all mothers - or even all women!  We are a commmunity of people inspired by Christ to bring a humanitarian response to the needs of families around us.

 

If you want to ....

  • help build a world where dignity, love and respect define relationships,

  • do all you can to eradicate the inequalities brought about by poverety, ignorance of rights and lack of opportunity,

  • meet like-minded people and have fun at the same time

come and join us at one of our monthly meetings.

 

We meet the first Wednesday of every month at 2.30pm and have a different topic at each meeting.
