About the Mothers Union
How did the Mothers’ Union start?
The Mothers’ Union was started in England in 1876 by Mary Sumner. It now has more than one million members in 70 countries.
We are the largest voluntary worldwide women’s organisation with 122,000 members in the UK alone. The Mothers’ Union plays an important role in the religious life and social policies of many countries, with our members committed to supporting the family.
What does the Mothers’ Union do today?
With more than a million members, the Mothers’ Union is the largest Christian women’s organisation in the world with a distinctive tradition of personal links and relationships worldwide. United by a common commitment to Christian family life, and by the custom of the cycle of midday prayers we are active in our own local communities, in all sorts of ways, fitting our activities to those local priorities and needs.
Brampton Mothers Union has an exciting programme of meetings, give it a go, you will be sure to make new friends and have a good time.
