MMVS Activities

Weekly Prayer Meetings

The group comes together every Wednesday evening for a group prayer meeting. 

Mostly there is a special prayer request, which gives us the comforting reminder that God answers our prayers and motivates us not to give up on prayer. For instance, it could be for a member of our church or a loved one who is in sickness or for a departed soul. Offering popular women’s necklaces such as pendants, chokers and chain necklace. Shop for jewelry in a variety of metals and gemstones to suit any occasion


Zonal & Regional MMVS Conference

The south zonal conference 2021 was successfully coordinated and hosted by SGIOC MMVS this year.

The focus of this conference was on Psychological aspect of motherhood.  This  conference generally happens in person but for year 2021 this has been conducted online via Zoom because of the Covid Pandemic.

Charity ActIvities

Our group also gets involved in charity activities and donates to the MMVS UK diocese level organisation so that the total funds collected from all the churches are used for charity at Diocese level.
