Supporting families around the world
We are an international Christian membership movement supporting families and communities in need of support in the UK and worldwide since 1876. Our members are active in 84 countries and work tirelessly to serve their communities whilst offering Christian care for families, regardless of faith or background.
Through our work and prayer with families, children and people of all ages Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Worcester is making an impact.
Our members work practically with projects across the diocese both through their local church but also locally according to need.
We seek to work practically to educate and empower women and families by:
assist NHS nurses in supporting teenage mothers
Help schools with ‘Open the Book’
Organise parent support groups
Organising ‘Away from it all holidays’
Assist in the canteen of our prisons meeting, greeting and supporting visitors especially mothers and children; making and serving refreshments and conversing with the visitors; providing gifts throughout the year and especially at Christmastime.
We make over 4,000 christmas cards for the prisoners and their families annually
Support refugees to settle into school and community
Support and assist our priests with baptism and preparing couples for marriage
Attend wedding fairs
Assist in foodbanks; centres for the homeless and isolated and support the elderly to remain in their own homes.
We continue to support our local Refuges who offer shelter to victims of domestic violence by providing household essentials, toiletries and Christmas gift boxes.
We have a lively knitting and prayer shawl ministry

Please check out the central website - Mothers' Union is offering to support key workers to have a holiday/break/day out.
Mothers’ Union members here in the Worcester diocese regularly provide various types of breaks for many people throughout the year in the UK, through our "Away From It All" (AFIA) scheme, supporting families who are experiencing stressful times and would otherwise not have the opportunity of a holiday.
