Mothers’ Union Vision

Our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships.

Aim & Purpose:

To demonstrate the Christian faith in action by the transformation of communities worldwide through the nurture of the family in its many forms.

Mission:

  • 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

Values:

Mothers’ Union is firmly rooted in a voluntary ethos. Its governance, leadership, and programmes are driven by and undertaken through members around the world as they respond to God’s call to faith and action.

Beliefs:

We believe in the value of each individual and their unique qualities.

We believe in the value of relationships. Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind”.  This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it: “Love your neighbour as yourself”.

We believe in the value of the family in its many forms as a source of love and support for individuals and the basis for a caring community.

We don’t just make tea & buns, we have different topics each month! It can be fun!

Mothers’ Union Prayers:

Loving Lord,
We thank you for your love
so freely given to us all.
We pray for families around the world.
Bless the work of the Mothers’ Union
as we seek to share your love
through the encouragement, strengthening
and support of marriage and family life.
Empowered by your Spirit,
may we be united in prayer and worship,
and in love and service reach out
as your hands across the world.
In Jesus’ name.

Amen.

God of love and life
When we count the
cost of our relationships
And struggle to
pay the price, help
us to remember how
you gave us your only son.

When we give freely,
We mirror your
greater gift. And
we become like you
in loving without reward.
Amen.
