Mothers' Union

The Mothers’ Union branch at Holy Saviour’s was opened in 1931 and currently has 45 members. The members meet twice a month on the 1st Monday and 3rd Thursday at 2pm, but we do have some evening meetings to cater for the younger members who work. Our meetings always begin with a short service of worship taken by the members. The aim of the Mothers’ Union is the advancement of the Christian religion in the sphere of marriage and family life, and the MU is active in supporting family life in many ways. Our branch are involved in the organisation of the monthly Pram Service in church on the 2nd Monday at 2pm which is enjoyed by parents and grandparents as well as children from birth until school age.

Worldwide Members:  four million worldwide, with a particularly strong presence in Africa. 
Who they actually are: Members give their time, their expertise and their resources to do all they can to support stable family life in their own communities. Their contribution to community life whereever they live in the world is very much faith in action as being part of Mothers' Union strengthens their faith. In more than 80 countries where we work there is not one place where there is not enormous pressure on families, on relationships and on community life. Mothers' Union responds where it can with expertise, credibility and a passion to create positive change. At the heart of our work is our prayer life, which binds our membership together in fellowship, and which lies at the centre of all that we do. Prayer gives an understanding of situations and a motivation to change things for the better.
