The Rt Revd Martin Shaw, Bishop of Argyll and the Isles, was enrolled in Mothers
Union at a service in St St John's Cathedral, Oban on 18th February 2009.
Wave of Prayer Visitors
We were very privileged to have Archbishop Brown Turei and his wife, Mihi, from our
Wave of Prayer linked Diocese of Aotearoa stay with us during their pre-Lambeth visit
to our diocese in July 2008. They were hosted by a member of Mothers’ Union here.
The photo above shows them at a supper and entertainment which was organised for
all four visiting bishops and their spouses at Duror and Kentallen Village Hall in
Appin. and below they are with our own Bishop Martin Shaw outside Inverary Castle
during their visit.
The Archbishop is Primate of the The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and
Polynesia and Bishop of the Diocese of Te Pīhopatanga o Aotearoa, with which the
MU in Argyll & the Isles is linked through the Wave of Prayer.
Formal Affiliation to the Mothers’ Union
At World Wide Council in September 2006, the Diocese of Argyll and The Isles was
formally affiliated to the Mothers’ Union. Here Fiona Rice is holding the certificate.
