To Deaneries and Branch Listing


Christ Church Swindon

Pictures of the MU Deanery Festival and Choral Evensong held at Christ Church, Swindon, on 8 May 2016 to celebrate 140 years of MU internationally and 110 years locally.


The service started with an introit, a new setting of Mary Sumner's personal prayer, written specially for the event by the Director of Music at Christ Church, Tim Eyles.

We had a wonderful sermon from Ven. Christine Froude, Archdeacon and the service was also attended by our local MP Robert Buckland, both of whom helped later to cut the cake made by our local cake expert Karen Harris.

Christine, Senior Branch Secretary and Audrey Hewer, Branch Treasurer are also pictured as together with other branch members they laid out and served the tea on best china.
