Can you imagine a world without Mothers' Union.  The MU is always there at Fetes, Garden Parties and any other church event where cakes, scones and teas are required.

But that is not the MU’s prime reason for being here.

The Mothers’ Union was established in 1876. Its purpose was to encourage parents to care for their children, not just physically and mentally but also spiritually.

From the outset it recognised that strong relationships and the role of family, however defined, are crucial in building healthy communities.


The Mothers’ Union Objectives are:

To promote and support married life.
To encourage parents in their role to develop the faith of their children
To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service
To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children
To help those whose family life has met with adversity

Our membership

Our members are not all mothers, or even all women. They are single,
married, parents, grandparents, or young adults just beginning to express their
social conscience. Mothers' Union provides, for all four million members, a
network through which they can serve Christ in their own community - through
prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in
programmes that meet local needs.
