Worshipping God

Following Jesus

Sharing His Love

The Mothers' Union aim is to be transformational.  As a worldwide fellowship of four million members, the Mothers’ Union is well placed to deliver a global expression of Christian care for families in the heart of local communities.  Seeking to nurture individuals, families and whole communities we :

PRAY  for relationships to be flourishing and loving.
CAMPAIGN for social justice for those on the margins and for greater recognition
of the value of stable family life.
ENABLE  development of all kinds, economic, relational and personal so that marriage and family life are strengthened.

Working with some of the most marginalised communities in the world our volunteers and trainers help people lift themselves out of poverty and improve health, hygiene and family relationships.  All over the world we support parents in doing what we see as the most difficult and the most rewarding job in the world - safely raising children.  Our members never forget they serve a global population of 7 billion.

The Mothers' Union in this benefice meets on the first Thursday in February, March, May, June, July, September and November, either in the Market Theatre foyer at 2pm or as arranged.  A Corporate Communion is held in St Katharine's Chapel at 10.30am on the third Thursday of each month.  As part of the wider Mothers' Union organisation we attend Deanery and Diocesan services and events.  We particularly support AFIA ('Away From It All' - holidays for families or people with particular needs who cannot afford to take a break) and the work of the Mothers' Union overseas.

We extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join Mothers' Union and are actively seeking to start a possible evening section. Links to Mothers' Union web sites can be found here:
