Mothers' Union is an international Christian charity that seeks to support families worldwide.In 83 countries, our members share one heartfelt vision - to bring about a world where God's love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships. This is not a vague hope, but a goal we actively pursue through prayer, programmes, policy work and community relationships. By supporting marriage and family life, especially through times of adversity, we tackle the most urgent needs challenging relationships and communities. Our members are not all mothers, or even all women, but also include single, married, or young adults just beginning to express their social conscience.
For all 4 million members what Mothers' Union provides is a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community - through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in programmes that meet local needs. We lobby local and national governments on issues affecting family life and campaign to challenge legislation that neglects the vulnerable and marginalised. We are also represented at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.
We regard prayer as a vital part of our lives.
Mothers' Union in this Parish normally meet on the first Wednesday of the month at the Cross Tree Centre at All Saints Church. We have a varied programme of speakers and events. Any funds raised are sent away to be used to support Mothers Union projects locally, nationally or overseas. In this Parish we knit teddies to be given to those who are baptised and send out cards on the early anniversaries of a baptism. For more information please contact us through the church office, we would love to welcome you. To find out about the Mothers' Union in Bath and Wells Diocese follow the link.
