Building Hope and Confidence
Mothers’ Union is a Christian organisation that has been supporting families worldwide for over 140 years. Started by our founder Mary Sumner in 1876 in her local parish in Winchester, we have flourished into an international charity with over 4 million members in 84 countries.
As a Christian membership charity, we aim to demonstrate our faith
in action through the transformation of communities worldwide.
Our members work at grassroots level around the world bringing
hope and practical support to millions of people every year through
our parenting, literacy and community development programmes
and as part of the volunteer base of local churches.
At a central level we have, through the years, campaigned at local,
national and international levels to bring about real change for family
life, women’s and girls’ rights and the protection of children.
At the heart of what we do is prayer and our members come together every day at midday to focus prayers for their communities, fellow members and for those in need. We believe that the power of prayer is transformational and supports our work around the world.
Despite our name we are an inclusive organisation and we are very proud to have a growing number of men who have joined us. As we continue to work in an ever-challenging world, why not join us in our journey and be a part of something life-changing?
A group of members of Yateley MU meet once a month on a Tuesday evening at Kate Casselton’s home, 7:45pm. We are a small, friendly group discovering more about the work of MU, sharing thoughts and ideas about parenting, and trying where we can to serve children and families here in Yateley. So far, our projects have included organising an annual light party, fundraising events such as our votes for women tea party, and getting involved in MU campaign work and social policy. Anyone is welcome to come along to our meetings, you don’t have to be a member of MU, so join us for anything that takes your interest!
Details of what we do each month can be found in St Peter’s Grapevine.
