The Mothers’ Union
Mothers’ Union: is “All around the world and just round the corner.”
We are a Christian charity with 4 million members living in over 80 countries. Our aim and purpose is to show the Christian faith in action, particularly in nurturing family life in all its forms. Mothers’ Union work is about the service we can offer to our community and it is all underpinned by our members’ active prayer life.
Please pray for all our linked prayer partners especially those requested by Rev Victoria for Madi & West Nile’s MU Diocesan Executive. Their diocese are supporting (latest figures 700,000 received in May 2017) refugees from South Sudan and the Congo.
We are also linked in Prayer to the following diocese;
Mundri in South Sudan, Isikwuato in Nigeria and Seoul in South Korea
Our Parish-wide Mothers’ Union branch is active & well-supported. Feel free to come and sample our meetings.
