On the walls of the Chancel are banners of St. Nicholas, our patron, and of the Mothers' Union.
St. Nicholas is the patron saint of children and sailors and travellers.
The Mothers' Union is a worldwide fellowship of Christians specially concerned with marriage and Christian family life. There are branches in many parishes throughout the Anglican Communion, and over one million members worldwide. More information about the Mothers' Union is available on the notice board at the back of the church.
Pause here and think about your own family life and families you know, and pray for all who work in support of family life and children.
