The Mothers' Union

THE MOTHERS’ UNION is a worldwide Christian organisation of over 4 million members.  Our vision is of a world where God’s love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships.  To achieve this, we have to tackle many practical barriers  and this is done through a wide variety of projects such as literacy and financial programmes, health and life skills education, parenting skills courses, marriage preparation, prisoner support and many more. We also campaign against injustice and exploitation – such as the Bye Buy Childhood campaign. And, very importantly, everything we do is led and supported by prayer.

Mothers' Union members include both women and men, parents and non parents, young and old.  Our branch meets on the first Tuesday of most months at 8.00 pm in the Ark Room (upstairs from the Hunt Room).  We have a varied programme of speakers as well as regular social events and outings which involve the whole church and wider community. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.

The local Hoddesdon group is also committed to supporting Mothers' Union groups in places around the world and regularly fundraises to support projects.
