Mothers Union

 Mothers’ Union is an international Christian charity that seeks to support families worldwide, with members in 83 countries. The Mothers’ Union branch at St Thomas’ Church was reopened on 10th October 2010. All the meetings are open to everyone; you do not have to be a member to come.


Our regular meetings are:-

Our meeting is on the third Thursday of  the month at 1.30pm in the Lady Chapel, through  the side entrance of St Thomas’ church. We finish in time to collect children  from school.

Every Wednesday afternoon from 1.00-3.00pm, we are running a DROP-IN for little ones and their carers. Our church hall is a large space ideal for little ones to let off steam whatever the weather. Please drop in for however long you want, have a drink and a chat, play with some toys or run around. St Thomas’ Church Hall, St Thomas’ Avenue, off  Kingsway. It is Free!

We run the MU parenting course, for details of the next one please phone 01623 755131.

The Mothers’ Union Prayer

Loving Lord,
We thank you for your love so freely given to us all.
We pray for families around the world.
Bless the work of the Mothers’ Union as we seek to share your love
through the encouragement, strengthening and support of marriage and family life.
Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship,
and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world.
In Jesus’ name.
