With 4 million members working in 81 countries, Mothers' Union is passionate about caring for families all around the world.
Our work is threefold;
Programmes: a diverse range of programme meets the needs of people within local communities - from entrepreneur training, health education, parenting and relationship education provision, to teddies for children experiencing stress or trauma - our programmes are designed to meet the needs of people at the local level.
Internationally, nationally and at the local level, our policy work challenges root causes of injustice and works for better conditions in society for children and families.
All of our work is underpinned by the Christian faith of our members
- a challenge to 'love mercy, seek justice and walk humbly with our God.' Micah 6:8.
Our church branch, although full of wonderful women, is in the older side and I am at least 25 years younger than the current youngest member. And this left me feeling a little unsure whether I would fit in.
But today I went to the meeting for the first time, to ask for volunteers for our new toddler service, and was welcomed openly and enjoyed the fellowship. So I made the decision to join; no reason not to, lots of reasons to do so.
I will join officially next month at their service in church and hope to get fully involved; exciting times.
