Mothers' Union at Christ Church

The Mothers' Union is an organisation with over 3.6 million members living in almost 80 countries across the world who believe in the importance of families.  As well as encouraging and supporting families, members work to reach out to those who are isolated, in trouble, or in need of help.  We do this through fellowship, programmes, policy and prayer.

We have a very active Mothers' Union branch at Christ Church, with regular meetings and events.  Meetings are held in the Friendship Area in Church on the first Wednesday of the month, usually starting at 2pm.  We would love to see new faces, so please come along to find out more of what we are all about.  You will be made most welcome!! don't have to be a mother to join the Mothers' Union...and men are welcome too!
