My first recollection of Women’s Work in the Methodist Church is sitting in the back row in the Sisterhood meeting as a three year old child. In those days the young mothers were asked to sit at the back in case their children made a sound and disturbed the speaker. What a difference today when we welcome young women with open arms, provide toys and snacks for their children and don’t worry about them walking around or being noisy.

I have been a member of the Welsh Methodist Church forever and have enjoyed the fellowship and worship over the years.  I retired from my job as a Food Technology teacher  three years ago and now enjoy looking after my grandchildren and doing ‘the school run’.  I now have time to help out at the  Coffee and Chat  group at my church, which has given me the opportunity  to get  to know fellow members better. I also lead worship groups at my  own church and others in the area.  In my spare time I enjoy gardening, walking and sewing.
