Oakworth MU had a great time learning about the 'Southern' lights of Antartica as Judith shared with us about her trip.

MU took their turn in the worldwide annual 'Wave of Prayer' slot, and had a good time of praying for our link dioceses abroad as well as for our own community here at Oakworth.

Oakworth MU had a good time together on Tuesday December 5th at 1.30pm at Christ Church Oakworth where we had a good natter, drank tea, ate stollen and mince pies whilst colouring Christmas cards.
