Mother’s Union

Welcome to Mothers’ Union


Mothers’ Union is an international Christian charity that seeks to support families worldwide.
In 84 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. Single, married, parents, grandparents, 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. Mothers’ Union lobbies local and national governments on issues affecting family life and campaigns to challenge legislation that neglects the vulnerable and marginalised. It is also represented at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.
Check out the website to discover the amazing things that Mothers’ Union is involved in.
