Mothers Union

MU 140 years"A Celebration of Faith" 140 years 1876-2016

The Mothers' Union is a worldwide Christian organisation with over four million members spread over eighty-three countries .

It was started by Mary Sumner, a vicar's wife, in 1876 in their village to encourage and help parents in caring for their children.  We have gone a long way since then and the Mothers' Union is particularly strong in Africa.  The more this organisation grows, the more it can make an impact in society and help support parents and families.  Our opinion on Christian and social matters which affect families is asked for by the Government.  We are no longer just an organisation for mothers - all women, men and even children can join.  In this diocese there are over one thousand and fifty members in fifty branches.  All our meetings are at 2.30pm in the Church Institute unless shown otherwise. New members and guests are welcome. Lifts can be arranged.
