MOTHERS’ UNION is a Christian mission charity seeking to support families worldwide.  The support of families is greater than ever, in over 80 countries with 4 million members worldwide sharing a vision to bring about a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships.


To promote and support married life

To encourage parents in their role to develop the faith of their children

To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service.

To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children

To help those whose family life has met with adversity

Our local group has enjoyed talks from various MU speakers, such as updates of members work in the Detainee Centre’s at Gatwick airport and Away From It All Caravan Projects, demonstration and work of the Prayer Shawl Ministry and meditational meetings focusing on prayer.  

We come together during the year for fellowship and sociable activities, enjoying meal celebrations and outings of various forms.
