About Us

Our vision is of a world where God's love is shown through loving, respectful and flourishing relationships.

Mission Statement

The Mothers’ Union is a Christian organization which promotes the well-being of families worldwide. We achieve this by:

  • developing prayer and spiritual growth in families
  • studying and reflecting on family life and marriage and its place in society
  • resourcing our members to take practical action to improve conditions for families, both nationally and in the communities in which they live.

Our aim and purpose is to demonstrate the Christian Faith in action by the transformation of communities worldwide through the nurture of the family in its many forms.

Mothers’ Union members do this by working toward five objectives:

  • promoting and supporting marriage
  • encouraging parents in their role to develop the faith of their children
  • maintaining a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service
  • promoting conditions in society favorable to stable family life and the protection of children
  • helping those whose family life has met with adversity


We believe in the value of each individual and their unique qualities.

We believe in the value of relationships.

We believe in the value of the family in its many forms as a source of love and support for individuals and the basis for a caring community.

Mothers' Union unites Christians of all ages across the world. Through prayer, campaigning and volunteering, members strengthen marriage and family life and bring about positive changes in their communities.
