Mothers Union 2016

 

Meetings are at 10.30 a.m. in the Church Room,
on the 3rd Thursday of the month
unless otherwise stated.

2016 programme is here

 

The Mothers' Union (MU) is a Christian organisation with more than three and a half million members worldwide. The backbone of the MU is our worldwide network of grass-roots volunteers. Whatever their individual backgrounds, our members are united in their commitment to supporting marriage and family. Volunteers give their time generously to help others, whether by running local projects, supporting international campaigns, or fundraising.

The MU also employs over 300 paid workers around the world. These are women drawn from local dioceses, so they speak the language, understand the culture and customs and have first-hand experience of the problems their neighbours face. MU workers provide vital leadership for efforts in the community. They enable people to gain essential skills, develop and encourage sustainable self-help projects, and run training seminars for local MU members and the wider community.

 

Workers also run the Literacy and Development Programme in Malawi, Sudan and Burundi. This programme enables learners to become literate and numerate as well as gaining skills in health, hygiene, HIV/AIDS and poverty alleviation.

The MU is also involved in campaigning and lobbying on a number of worldwide issues such as parental rights, international debt relief and child poverty. We are happy to be working in partnership with various organisations, including the United Nations and other ecumenical groups.

Loving Lord

We thank you for your love

Bless the work of the Mothers’ Union
as we seek to share your love
