Cake for New Neighbours

Moving to a new area can be a challenging experience as it often means leaving familiar surroundings, friends and community life behind.

To help with this Mothers' Union members in Oxford work with other churches and the Kingsmere Estate in Bicester to support each new household as they move into the estate.

Whenever a house is completed and new tenants are moving in they will receive a cake to welcome them to the neighbourhood. Mothers' Union branch members support this community project by bringing along cakes for the new families.

"We were so surprised to find that the local community is reaching out to us by welcoming us to the neighbourhood with a cake. We started to feel at home at once and are looking forward to living here and making new friends."
