Knitted Angels/Wooden Spoons

Mothers's Union members in the diocese of Coventry took part in an Inspired Day run in the diocese Throughout the meeting participants learnt about initiatives run in other parts of their diocese and thourght about new ways of reaching communities.

As a result of the session a branch leader came away with the idea of knitting little angels to give to baptism families, which was already being done by members elsewhere in the diocese. She consulted her vicar, who encouraged her branch to start knitting.

The vicar also asked if they could find a way of producing wooden spoons for wedding couples with their names and wedding date on. So members now hand-paint spoons to order, too.
