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, nor all women. Single, married, parents, grandparents, and 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.


Our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships.


  •  To promote and support married life
  •  To encourage parents in their role to develop the faith of their children
  •  To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service
  •  To promote conditions in society favorable to stable family life and the protection of children
  •  To help those whose family life has met with adversity
