The Mothers Union, St James Riding Mill

Welcome to the Mothers Union!

The Mothers Union (MU) is a Christian organisation with more than 3.6 million members worldwide. The backbone of the MU is its worldwide network of volunteers. Whatever their individual backgrounds, members are related by a commitment to marriage and family. They give their help generously to others, whether by running local projects, supporting international campaigns or fundraising.

Mary Sumner, the founder of the Mother’s Union was all too aware of the burdens and responsibilities of parenting: of the feelings of inadequacy that swamp young mothers.

She believed that the primary responsibility was to raise children in the love of God.

The MU is a Christian organisation that fully embraces the ideal of love and service at home and abroad.

Branch leader: Lynda Padgett
