The aim of the Mothers’ Union is to be transformational. Our worldwide fellowship of over four million members, brings Christian care to families of all kinds, and operates worldwide.
The grassroots nature of our locally-based membership means that the focus of Mothers’ Union is on promoting marriage and building stable family life within local communities.
This care is delivered through our three strategic steps as we:
PRAY for relationships to be flourishing and loving
ENABLE development of all kinds, economic, relational and personal so that family life is strengthened
CAMPAIGN for social justice for those on the margins and for greater recognition of the values of stable family life
Our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships. This is not a vague hope, but a goal that we actively pursue by praying, campaigning and enabling.
Mothers’ Union is a Christian mission organisation working with people of all faiths and those with none. Mothers’ Union is firmly rooted in a voluntary ethos centred on mutual respect and collaboration. Our governance, leadership and programmes are undertaken and driven by members within their own communities worldwide.
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 their 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.
Our branch here at St. Paul’s is 70 years old and currently has 22 members. We meet on the first and third Wednesdays of every month, after the 10.00am Holy Communion service; for tea or coffee, a chat, and sometimes we have a visiting speaker.
