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

In Jesus’ name. Amen

Most of the news we get from our friends in Madagascar is in their own language, but this is plain enough. ...

Today we support our sisters in Mothers' Union Madagascar as they call for a day of prayer and fasting for country as they face a plague epidemic. Marie-Pierrette Bezara, MU President in the Province of the Indian Ocean, asked us to pray that ‘the God of mercy save the Malagasy people from this horrible disease’. She quoted Mark 16:17-18, which reads ‘And these signs will accompany those who believe… they will pick up snakes in their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them’. And she added: ‘We are united by our risen Lord. So dear sisters, join us with prayer on that day.’
