Mothers' Union

Here at St. Andrew’s our MU branch is very active and membership continues to grow. Our monthly meetings are varied, with speakers on a variety of subjects, craft evenings, reflections, fundraising, social.  We begin each meeting with prayer and an update of what is going on locally and nationally. Above all they are a time for fellowship and inspiration. You are very welcome to come to the meetings, even if you are not a member - come and meet us, and find out more about what we do.

Mothers' Union is an international Christian membership charity which aims to demonstrate Christian faith in action through the transformation of communities worldwide. The vision of Mothers' Union is to see a world where God's love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships. 

You do not have to be a mother to join, membership is open to everyone, male and female alike. It is a community of men as well as women, single as well as married, young and young at heart, some parents, some not.
