About Mothers' Union London

In 1876 Mary Sumner, a clergyman’s wife living in Hampshire, became concerned about how local mothers related their Christian faith to family life. Wanting to encourage them she founded a small group called the Mothers’ Union. Interest in this group quickly spread, and it is now a worldwide organisation with more than 4 million members.  Mothers’ Union began here in the London Diocese in 1890, and we now have over 50 branches throughout the Diocese.

The MU in Diocese of  London first started in 1890 and we celebrated our 125 years anniversary in 2015.

The Diocese of London covers London north of the Thames and stretches from the Isle of Dogs in the east to Staines upon Thames in the west and as far north as Enfield.  It is broken down in to four diocese; Edmonton, Kensington, Stepney and Willesden.
Our aims and objectives are:
  • To promote and support marriage and family 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 favourable to stable family life and the protection of children
  • To help those whose family life has met with adversity
Our vision
Our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships. This is not a vague hope, but a goal we actively pursue by praying, campaigning and enabling.
Our values
Mothers’ Union is a Christian mission organisation working with people of all faiths and none. Mothers’ Union is firmly rooted in a voluntary ethos based on mutual respect and collaboration. Our governance, leadership and projects are undertaken and driven by members within their own communities worldwide.
Our membership
Our members are not all mothers, or even all women. They are single, married, parents, grandparents, or young adults just beginning to express their social conscience. Mothers' Union provides, for all four million members, a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community - through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in projects to meet local needs.
