Mothers Union

Mothers Union (MU) is a worldwide organisation with over 4 million members.

Our members are not all mothers, or even all women.
They are single, married, parents, grandparents, or young adults.
Mothers’ Union provides a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community –
through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level.

Our aims and objectives are:
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
