The Mothers' Union
The Mothers' Union is a world wide Christian organization, which promotes the well-being of families.
Their purpose is to support everything that strengthens and preserves marriage and family life.
Who can join?
Membership is open to anyone who is baptised and believes in the importance of family life, so men and women; married or single, parents and those without children, can all belong.
The Wombourne Branch meets at our hall at the Church of the Venerable Bede on the 2nd Tuesday of each month starting at 2.30pm. The programme is advertised in our monthly Parish magazine “Grapevine".
We have a variety of speakers at our meetings- some serious, some amusing, some thought provoking.
All the work of the Mother’s Union is based on prayer. Each month there is a celebration of Holy Communion at 11.00am at the Venerable Bede which our members make a special effort to attend. The service is followed by coffee, biscuits, a chat and sometimes an extremely good lunch prepared by members of the church social committee.
The knowledge that we are part of a world wide organisation within the Anglican Church widens horizons. Members learn of the needs of families in this and other countries and we try to give care and help when and where possible.
Our Branch has members from the other churches in our Team Ministry and works with the other branches of the Lichfield Diocesan Mothers' Union. This means that our members have the opportunity to attend conferences, and meetings with members from other branches.
Our Branch Leader is Rev. Pat Taylor Tel 01384 620626.
Pat is always willing to talk to people about the work of the Mothers' Union in our Parish and to introduce new members to our branch.
The Headquarters of the Mothers' Union is at Mary Sumner House in Westminster, London.
Our Mothers' Union is about Friendship, fellowship and fun
